The Dunes

September 22, 2017

The first plant I notice walking around the dunes is the sea daffodil with its beautiful white trumpet and strange bulbous green seed pods. The edge of the forest is bounded by salt water channels and aleppo pines, with low scrub of mastic and wayfaring bushes. Heather grows in the more dense undergrowth while butterflies and dragonflies dart from bush to bush.
