New Life Among the Old Ruins

On a visit to Turkey, we went on a tour of Ancient Ephesus, where there are incredible Greek and Roman ruins.   Ephesus was founded over 3000 years ago, and it was a major trading capital of the Roman Empire.  Hidden among the ruins, in the dry and dusty heat, despite all the thousands and thousands that walk this way each week, this little plant brought a welcome touch of colour to the old stones.

    For some reason your posts were not appearing in my reader, how dare wordpress let that happen! Lovely to have you back! Poppies are springing up everywhere at the moment, they certainly brighten up the roadside. Love the contrast of the yellow stone and the bright red poppies
