When visiting the peninsula in April, as we did this year (2019), flowers and fresh green of blossoming plants are all around you. Slopes are turning purple due to this plant.
Yellow broom and white daisies alongside the roads and paths.
When the paths are not in the shades this how green it can be.
The first butterflies appear after an rainy day.
There are not many poppies to see, maybe the soil is to vertile for them.
This is near Kavsokalivia on the south slope of the Mountain.
But for me, the most spectacular plant in springtime is Euphorbia which grows in this form between the rocks on the south slope of Mount Athos.
