I’ve found another sign of the arrival of spring, the Asphodel flower is in full bloom here in Cyprus. They are not that colorful but still, a beauty in its own special way. They grow wild and I see them everywhere when I walk my dogs, not far from our house in Zelemenos.
I read some interesting facts about this unique plant such as it symbolizes mourning and regret. Many translate its symbolism as “remembered beyond the tomb”. In ancient Greece, it was planted near tombs. It was believed that this plant was used as food for the dead.
