The flowers of Syros

Syros offered an abundance of flowers. We saw most of them on the one day we did a lot of sightseeing. On the other hand, this shouldn’t astonish me so much. Usually there are no flowers on the beach. I love a sandy beach but whatever should grow there. So when we had our sightseeing day walking up to Ano Syros, due to overcast sky, rain, and quite cool temperatures, flowers everywhere beckoned me to take pictures of them. I have missed taking pictures of flowers, especially since I haven’t done that in a very long time. The last time happened actually last year on Milos. So I am very grateful to share with you my yield from Syros. Here they are, the flowers of Syros. Yours, Pollybert
