This is the seventh of thirty photographs from our visit to Crete in September/October 2006.

I have already published a different set of sixty photographs on my website at Crete 2006. You'll also find there some accounts of our visit and links to relevant websites.

This is nice photo, indeed. What I like the most on it is the flower for which I think it is Glory Mary. It really is glorious. By the way, I also like the colours of that building.

@medam961: A <i>Glory Mary</i> - well glory be there were a lot of them about and many other flowers too in hedgerows. Many thanks for the information.

Such a pretty place. We have those plants in India. We used to call them `blue bells'. I don't know what they are actually called. Is that a common car model in Crete?

@Weboj: English bluebells are something very different - see http://www.geraldengland.co.uk/nat/ni004.htm - not sure what the car is but it looks quite a common European model.

Veru lucky and original color combination one seldom comes across!! The usually difficult traffic sign (hindrance!) gets its important role here! Splendid!
