Poseidon's garden?
« on: March 19, 2019, 08:00:31 PM »
Not my garden but perhaps it could be described as Poseidon's garden at a stretch of the imagination. This Chukar was calling to its mate as the sun went down in the area of Poseidon's Temple at Cape Sounion. The sun was also going down on the last day of a long weekend trip to the Athens area by a group from the Cyprus Branch of the MGS.
Cyprus Branch Head. Gardens in a field 40 m above sea level with reasonably fertile clay soil.
"Aphrodite emerged from the sea and came ashore and at her feet all manner of plants sprang forth" John Deacon (13thC AD)
