There were wildflowers and garden blooms everywhere. The garden around my house was full of colour with vivid oleanders, plumbago, campsis and bougainvillea through the summer months, there’s masses of vibrant colour from exotic plants all around the coast – 1500 species of wild flowers, 150 unique to the island. Crete certainly is a beautiful place to visit – the people are friendly and the food is incredible. And if this isn’t enough, the plants and flowers might well tempt me back for another visit with Pure Crete next year!
