The plantlife on the mountainside was interesting. I've grown "alpine" plants in my garden for some time, but this was the first time I'd seen them in their natural habitat. Houseleeks, for example, and Aubretia were growing wild. Colchicum were sending up their as-yet leafless flowers. The trees made for an interesting bonsai effect, and the wild raspberries beside the path were delicious, and refreshing at the end of a long walk.
