What a wonderful way to spend your Katharine deftera among nature and enjoy the wild flowers. We have been having rain  and wind since the beginning of March so nature watching has been postponed.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

It is cold and windy today
There was snow on Gerania this morning but now it has melted

However, spring is on its way

Akrokorinthos, the plain and the Gulf of Corinth snapped early in May 2022

The plain and hillside still look very green but the Euphorbias and other wild flowers, are quickly drying up

Euphorbia characias, Mediterranean spurge  is mentioned in many issues of THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN quite often in lists of useful plants to have in Mediterranean gardens

I chose to read

Euphorbias are scattered around Ancient Corinth and Akrokorinthos
This is a photo of one  taken in March a few years ago

Ancient Corinth in the spring

Poppies and yellow flowers, not to mention the ancient ruins seen through the fence.

I am ashamed to say that I have not yet identified the millions of yellow flowers now in bloom in the ancient site
