“Autumn Flowers of the Peloponnese” Talk by Richard Jones

We were whisked away from a gloomy November afternoon, into the sun and blue skies of Greece .  Richard gave us a superb talk about the Peloponnese peninsula, it’s scenery, history, archaeology, customs and, above all, it‘s wonderful wildlife and wildflowers.  Everywhere there were  beautiful cyclamen, crocus, sternbergia and intriguing exploding cucumbers to name but a few of  the plants.  Richard’s photographs showed us the ruggedness and wildness of this part of Greece, unspoilt by tourism.
