Crete has an amazing flora, rich in variety with over 2,000 different kinds of flowers; of them at least 150 plants and wild herbs are endemic, which means that they do not exist in any other place in the world. An incredible variety of orchids are spread all over the island, different colors, sizes and many of them with sweet smelling scent.
The fabulous spring, with all the colors is like the garden of the paradise and when the sun burns the flowers in lower altitudes in the mountain and in the gorges we can find many many flowers all year round.
Arriving on Crete we immediately can smell the scent of this island covered with aromatic herbs and plants. No wonder that Cretan food is so goo!
Respect the flowers, don’t pick up orchids an other rare flowers; take a picture instead the flowers will be preserved and your souvenir will stay longer! Thanks!
