Pictures from the Pedi Valley




Lupinus varius.

Lupins in the Pedi valley.













An old clematis tangled around this oak tree.




A patchwork of greenery with a glimpse of the hills beyond.
















The flowers of the mediterranean medlar.

Very pretty but they do smell like a tom cat!









More and more of the Pedi valley is being fenced off but occasionally it is possible walk about the terraces unhindered.

Here is an old olive tree hidden amongst the trees.









An Oertzeni's lizard warms itself on a rock in the suns rays.









Finally this plant I found on the side of the path near the road.

Honeywart or Cerinthe major.
