Charity to promote the conservation of endangered and endemic flora on the Greek island of Crete.
Saturday, 5 September 2015
Since last writing anything on my blog, I have received the enormous honour of having a rare Cretan endemic named after me - Bellevalia juliana. I cannot say how proud I am and totally thrilled. I have drawn this plant, which I found around ten years ago in a field near where I live, in all it's stage, and I am planning to paint it when I get home. Eventually I hope to have some prints and greeting cards available, but that may take some time. Will post a photo soon.
