VETCH - VICIA CASIA (papilionaceae)

Picture of vetch taken in Cyprus, NICOSIA - XYLIATOS DAM - APRIL 2011.

There is a nature trail around the dam and the wild flowers are beautiful this time of the year. If you are lucky the waterfall will also be running!

Vetch are such tiny simple flowers, yet they bloom en masse and form a veritable carpet of colour wherever you look.

Pretty vetch in Cyprus
by: Helen (website owner)

Thanks for your submission George - lovely picture.

Vetch are so pretty in spring here in Cyprus - I have some great shots where they look like a colored blanket, covering entire fields in some cases. I found a picture of red vetch and uploaded it here to share with you.
