Mandragora officinarum

Anemone but possibly not coronaria

I hope I have identified everything correctly, but if not please let me know. It's an aspect of our hobby that I'm keen to learn more of.

Episode three Tomb of the Kings.

Wonderful pictures Mel, thank you so much for taking the trouble to post. I love the mandrake!

Tomb of the Kings.

The plants we found on this site and later along the coastal path back to our hotel were both interesting and sometimes a challenge to identify.

Of course like everywhere in this part of pafos the site was festooned with Cyclamen and like everywhere else they always present that must have picture. This one [sadly not a good shot] could be named 'The Cyclamen Cascade'.

Tragopogon sinuatus[Goatsbeard]was relatively easy to identify.

So was Anagalis arvensis[Pimpernel].

However, the Leguminosae family proved a challenge.

Sorry about the previous picture.

Tetragonolobus purpureus. Dragons Teeth, and it is obvious with this shot.

Finally Talking Heads

Asphodelus fistulosus, a common member of the Liliaceae family

The flowers are simple but appealing.

Have we found another endemic? Helianthemum obtusifolium.

Here are a few that we could not positively identify.
