Today’s photo, also from the series of flower photos from Wied il-Għasel last spring, shows inflorescences of the wild carrot, or Zunnarija Selvaġġa in Maltese (Daucus carota). This, too, is an indigenous plant, and commonly found in the garigue. These are really tiny flowers, but what intrigued me most, I think, is the shot of colour introduced by the deep purple anthers and reddish ovaries.
As I was going through the photos to pick this for today, I also noticed that I had missed another photo of Silla tal-Mogħoż when I wrote the corresponding blog post three weeks ago. So I updated that blog post, adding the second photo. Follow the link to take a look.
