It's not just about filthy flowers though. There was plenty of gorse about too, and lots of other less photogenic prickly flora.

We were feeling adventurous, so thought we would continue along the track above the grave and see if we could get to the abandoned village of Trimithousa.

So here are the pictures we took with our usual camera as we were on our travels.
