The flowers of Corfu

During an eight-day walk along the length of the Corfu Trail 150 different flowers were photographed by local author John Waller. The resulting images are displayed on these pages and were taken in a variety of locations along the Corfu Trail, ranging from coastal sand dunes in the south to mountain ridges in the north. 

The same flowers can be found in abundance across the island and are mainly in bloom from March to early June, and again in September and October. Another notable area of botanical interest is the British Cemetery in Corfu Town which contains over 30 different orchids. Infos from website: corfuflowers.com
