I took this last week in Cyprus, hand held, kneeling down in a temp of 120* when yes my knee locked again - my grandchildren had to lift this old fool up again. Botany being a very weak point of mine I have no idea of the flower's name.
Thank you again for taking the time to look and if possible view large

Thank you all for your kind comments - the only problem on the trip was heat - the averabge temp was 39* which even the Cypriots were complaining about, apparently it is very unusual for it to be so hot in June. Very difficult to take pics when the perspiration is streaming into one's eyes
