Erica manipuliflora

Mt. Ismaros, Thrace, Greece, November 24, 2011

After a very intresting morning in the school of Sapes, in the Evros department, we decided with my friend Kleopatra to visit the ancient theater of Maroneia, which was then the main candidate for a prsospected EU proposal. On our way back to Alexandroupoli we observed an entire slope on the foothills of Mt. Ismaros, covered with Erica bushes in full bloom. This is a very important plant for the apiculture, since it often represents the only source of nectar for the bees during early winter. For the record the EU proposal was never submitted J.
