Happy Mothers Day!

Published 31st of March, 2019

In the UK it is Mothers Day today. Cyprus celebrates this wonderful day along with much of the world on May 12th, but as we hail from England, we thought it appropriate to salute mothers today.

A Little Road Trip


Unfortunately, my Mum died a couple of weeks ago, which could dent the mood a little. She and Dad were due to visit this Spring, and she was particularly looking forward to seeing all the spring flowers. So I decided to do a blog showing the places I was planning taking them to. This shot is of the valley between Polemi and Drymou. You can just see the sign pointing to the EOKA hideaway if you look carefully. I took Mum and Dad to see it on their last visit, but that was in the autumn. Mum would be amazed at the difference now...


Paphos Forest


Mum would have loved views like this.

Above Evretou


Now, as I said, I wanted to do a blog showing the places we would have visited together. However, there was a slight snag...

Distant Evretou


The weather has been really bad recently. Ok, not really bad. There haven't been any hurricanes or snow storms, but it has been really wet and cloudy. This isn't really conducive to going out and taking pictures.

Distant Trimithousa


I did manage to get some nice shots, which I took while I was photographing Evretou. This one shows the abandoned village of Trimithousa. If you want to see this, come from the direction of Lysos. I came from Evretou and it is really, really muddy at the moment.

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...

Spring is in The Air!

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.
