Crete Winter 4

By PatriciaWilson      
It's been snowing all day today. The wild orchids on my land came out early due to the unusually hot February. Just shot this.What a difference a day makes!

V2 Decembers snow broke many branches off my orange tree.

V3 This 200 year olive tree outside my kitchen door split in two and lost most of it's branches and olive crop.

V3 Opened my front door to this! Both the very old olive trees lost most of their branches but amazingly, the specimen cactus garden, under the snow, suffered hardly any damage.

My neighborer lost 750 olive trees broken down because of the weight of the crop with the added weight of the snow.

You certainly had some snow over there, Patricia, I hope this time it's not as bad. Had some flurries here, but nothing much to talk about. Wonderful images, the poor orchid must wonder what's hit it! Carol

Lovely images even if it is a disaster for some of the plants. It is snowing here also, but we are more used to it
