Erika. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

Continuing with the series of flower photos from Wied il-Għasel last spring, for this week’s throwback I’m sharing a photo of a common little flower known as Erika in Maltese (Erica multiflora), or as the Mediterranean heath in English. It’s a common plant, indigenous to the islands, and one that was among the first I made a specific effort to identify. I recall noticing it, I think for the first time, on a climbing outing in Wied il-Għasel itself, so perhaps it’s fitting that the photo I’m sharing is from the same general area.
