The Stunning Flowers of Gozo

During the hot, dry months of summer Gozo can get quite brown and dusty, with no hint of the lush wildflowers that carpet the cliffs of Sannat in the spring.

But there are still gorgeous blossoms to be found as you enter cool courtyards and walled gardens, or crane your neck to look up at balconies festooned with cascades of vivid blooms.

Here are a few of my favorites found around Gozo and in the stunning garden of my friend Janet’s bed and breakfast: King’s Lodge.

 

Yellow Bougainvillea

What are your favorite flowers blooming this time of year?

Walking Tours Rome - What beautiful flowers – I’ve never seen anything like that first one before, do you know what it’s called? It looks like it’s ALIVE, and not in the normal way that all flowers are – if that makes any sense at all!
