Wildflowers
I have always loved flowers, so it was a given that I would take photographs of the wildflowers of Greece.
Over the years I've discovered all kinds of blooms, in all seasons, in all places. This is a small collection of my
pictures. Some, I'm sure, are weeds, but to me they are all beautiful.
I've done quite a bit of research on the names
of them, but I know that I'll be wrong on a good many, so if you see I've named one incorrectly, please let me
know. There are a few I couldn't find a name for.
