Spring flowers on Crete – Part 1

Spring is a wonderful time on Crete. Wildflowers are starting to bloom in the lower ranges of the mountain, anemones are popping their colours in containers and bougainvilleas are springing back to life. Figs and apricots are showing tiny fruits already and almond trees are flowering as well.

We have compiled a gallery of flowering plants to give you a little glimpse of what to expect when visiting Crete in early spring. Part 2 of “Spring flowers on Crete” will be on our site very soon…

While we may have trouble identifying all flowers by their names, they all are surely a joy to look at. Crete has something in bloom all year round, so remember – any season is a good season to visit Greece!
