This is the last of today’s posts about flowers!
North Cyprus tends to be a bit of a wildish place – there’s plenty of empty land around where plants run riot and little control is exerted. You often see the odd cow and goats and sheep feeding on these pieces of land. And I happen to think it looks quite good to see areas of this planet left unchained and allowed to run riot, although I know it drives some ex-pats bonkers.
This time of the year, North Cyprus is yellow – yellow mimosa (in Australia it’s known as wattle); wild, yellow daisies; yellow oxalis; yellow rapeseed flowers; yellow wild fennel flowers. Of course, the purists will shudder at what are considered weeds running riot, but it makes for a colourful show in Spring and makes the whole north of the island look very bright and cheery.
