Fields at the back of where we live, & a big old tree with the sun reflected on it. We're staying in the house in the background.
Cyprus has gone green - certainly not in the eco sense, but in colour. Everywhere there is an abundance of plants flourishing in the warmth after quite a lot of rain over the winter.
The fields are full of almost-ripe grain, the citrus trees are in blossom, with their gorgeous smell wafting all through the villages, and there are wild flowers everywhere.
I've been struck by the colours, which seem so much more vivid against a bright blue sky.
It almost seems as if all the plants are racing to get in their glory now, while the going's good, before the heat of the summer dries everything up!
Temperatures are in the twenties and I can sense it getting gradually warmer, week by week.
