Spring & Autumn

It's a strange time of year when the rains trigger growth and the land turns green after many months of drought. This is called the first spring on Symi. Terraces are prepared, here, and oats are planted for feed for the goats and sheep in the summer months. This valonia oak keeps to a more traditional cycle of Autumn and there are still plenty of acorns on the kermes oak tree.
