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

I think I have finally reached the last (plant) photo from that very productive session in Wied il-Għasel last spring. This plant took me a while to identify, because it looks so similar to other wild herbs in the mint family. (Or in other words, I hope I got this right.) Today’s plant is the Olive-leaved Germander, known in maltese as Żebbuġija (Teucrium fruticans). It is an indigenous plant, commonly found in the countryside.
