Onosis spinosa - although I have photographed this little flower before this year, in some areas it seems to be the only plant in bloom. Known in English as Spiny Rest Harrow, it’s spines certainly seem to deter sheep and goats, even now when other vegetation is extremely sparse.

Picnomon acarna - this spiny plant grows in abundance in dry riverbeds and abandoned fields. An attractive plant, once it has withered, takes on a rich golden colour, which looks even prettier.

Sedum amplexicaule subsp. tenuifoium - this subspecies is found on Crete. It is found on rocky slopes and in phryganae. The flowers are produced at the tip of the stems and are around 1.5 cms.
