Here are some of the many flowers we saw in the Imbros gorge on Thursday. The dragon arums (Dracunculus vulgaris) and Cretan ebony (Ebenus cretica) haven’t come out in the middle of the gorge but are in bloom at the bottom. There are patches of cyclamen in a few shady places, poppies, sage, and a variety of smaller flowers along the footpath.
Bee orchid (an ophrys)
Procopiania cretica (endemic)
Crepis auriculifolia (endemic)
