Looking forward to!
Sitting inside, painting Cypripedeum calcalceous for an exhibition in Hungary in April, I am thinking about the flowers I am looking forward to seeing when I go back to Crete in March. One of these is the delicate and easily overlooked Neontinia maculate, which I have only seen a few times. It can be found growing amongst Tulipa cretica and many other ophrys and orchids in ancient pine forests high in the mountains not too far from Elounda.
