Finally we spotted this plant in the Troodos mountains but couldn't decide what it was. We think it is either Arabis purpurea or cypria. What do you think?

March is a good time to visit Cyprus. The weather is about what you would expect in a typical British summer but without the rain. There isn't too many visitors so things are very relaxed and easy going. The flowers are fantastic and the archaeology, history and mythology is a bonus.For anyone thinking of studying plants in the field, and it is another very interesting aspect to our hobby, this beautiful island is a good place to start. Experts and day trips to go in search of wild flowers seem pretty thin on the ground so it's a go it alone adventure but one we have thoroughly enjoyed and recommend.

Mel & Elaine Linney.
