Sharing some common plants

Post by D. Cilia » Tue Jan 22, 2008 8:24 pm

Just wanted to share some pictures I took... nothing rare or special, but then beauty does not have to be rare! These were all taken in Gozo last November if I remember well.

P.S. My photography is of course no match to that of Stephen or anyone else for that matter, but I still hope that you enjoy these :D

This photo does not do the plant justice, which is of course lovely and sprawling with a delicious smell...

Helichrysum... unfortunately I took these photographs just as the flowering season for this lovely plant had just passed. Arguably the only rare plant in this set I am posting!

Well done David!

Often nature is beautiful that you do not need to be a sick perfect-man like me !!! The inula underwater was surprising. Keep sharing under this topic (Open Discussion about Maltese flora) or just on the other topic (Open Discussion)

Thanks for sharing
