Spring is in The Air!

Published 20th of February, 2017

Yesterday we took a walk out across the Akamas, above Avakas Gorge (which deserves a blog article of its own). Spring was definitely in the air, and the flowers were blooming. We took a few shots to share.

The Top of the Gorge

If you've visited Avakas Gorge, you may not have walked it's full length. As you ascend the rocks can get very slippery and it is definitely not something to be attempted after a rain shower. However, if you don't make it to the end you will miss some lovely scenery.

In The Stream

After the imposing walls of the gorge, the stream ascends into green fields populated by inquisitive goats.

Towards The Main Road

It is possible to drive near to here in a regular Saloon car, provided you approach from the main, Pegia - Polis road, past Kathikas.

Idyllic Scenery

Do not attempt to drive here from the Akamas though, unless you are in a 4x4.

Now, what you can't see from these photos, is how many flowers are also blossoming. I am no botanist, so I will rely on readers to enlighten me as to what I have photographed...

White Anemone

According to my wife, this is a White Anemone.

Cyprus Orchids

If you only visit in the heat of summer, you could be forgiven for thinking that a lot of Cyprus is like a desert; brown and arid. However, the truth is somewhat different. During Spring, most of Cyprus is green, as recent blogs will have shown. Not only that, but spring flowers come out to bloom, painting the hills and valleys with a sea of colour. If you are lucky, or you know where to look, you will also come across fields of orchids...
