Its such a pity that most visitors come to Greece in the summer and miss out on the wild flowers during the spring months. Its a beautiful season, particularly in this area, as all the olive groves seem to burst into bloom with varying coloured carpets of flowers, changing as spring goes on. One day you might see pink or white carpets nestled under the trees, then a couple of weeks later everything will have changed to a brilliant yellow and then onto mauve. Of course, this is also when the poppies start to appear, but in all honestly I can’t really say they form carpets under the trees! They do often appear in clumps in and around the olive groves though, sometimes accompanied with the beautiful vibrant blue wild irises.
