Gorgeous flowers, Andy. I see that they are native to the area. Must be quite a sight when they are all blooming.

I try and time my late spring walk(s) for when they are in flower. They come out 2 -3 times for about 4-5 days each time and I often miss it! I will try and find some more for posting here in due course. Many thanks!

This cistus is absolutely gorgoeus. It must be wonderful seeing it growing wild on the mountains

Thanks George!
No. Not really.
The bushes are exceedingly tough and impossible to walk through and the smell is sickly and overpowers the potentially wonderful aromas of wild rose, rosemary, lavender and thyme!!
