|IMG_4938 [Crocus palassii]|
This Autumn-flowering crocus grows from the Balkan Peninsula to West Iran but on the Greek territory - as far as I know - it can be found only on the islands of Chios and Lesvos. For some reason it also grows on one specific spot on Mt. Hymittos with its tepals being whitish rather than the commonly purple-lilac tepals of its “cousin” Crocus cartwrightianus [see here].
Both pictures were photographed on Mt. Hymittos on November 3, 2017.

|IMG_2539 [Syntagma square]|
Having coffee at the roof garden of a five-storey building occasionally provides opportunities for extra, non-scheduled, activities like using your mobile phone for a snapshot. In this case, I found the view inviting for a panoramic shot of Syntagma square: the “Trade Mark” we could say of Athens, Greece. One can see exclusive hotels on the left and the Greek Parliament in the distance.
