Nick Turland, co-author of 'Flowers of Crete' has asked if we can look out for a very rare flower which is in bloom now and can be found 'somewhere between Pano Pines and Kastelli'. It grows on cultivated land and continues to flower for some years after fields have been left fallow. To see the plant and, hopefully, recognise it, please go to Nick's flickr site. http://www.flickr.com/photos/nturland/3187002654/
The plant is called Bongardia and hasn't been seen since Lance Chiltern saw it seven years ago.
If you are in the area and fancy a 'treasure hunt' please look for it and send me a photo if you are lucky enough to find it.
