Protect the sea daffodil

 

I passed at Chrissi Akti (Golden Beach - a popular beach on the outskirts of Chania) today and was pleased to see that these small signs had sprouted next to the Sea Daffodils. Because this beautiful flowers grow on sandy beaches they are endangered by tourism as beachgoers and flowers compete for the same habitat. It looks like the Municipality of Chania has decided to put a few low key signs next to some of the flowers in order to make people aware of what they are and that they need protection. Well done! It's really nice to see initiatives like this.
But next time please call them 'Sea daffodils'. 'Lily of the sea' is a lovely name but it doesn't exist in English.
