Ammophila Arenaria - Elafonisos
Grass on sand dunes of the island of Elafonisos
I suppose that calling them sand dunes is a bit of an exaggeration
but the island of Elafonisos is mainly sandy with small dunes
or sand hills and boasts a number of rare rare plants and flowers.
It was still a little early in the year for flowers but the
grass blowing in the strong wind was beautiful. If you want
to know the full name of this "grass" it's called Ammophila
Arenaria and is common to a lot of sandy coastal areas.
