Here's a very rare and critically endangered plant : Centaurea lactuciflora

One site is accessible along the road, all the others spots are not easy to reach, the one i visited has a 60% hill (1 foot ahead, 2 backward).



After 20mn of ascent the graal is visible.

641309-2

Still 5mn to access the foot hill

thank you Thomas, to be at the right time is always a poker party. This year the late season in the Balkans offer us a lot of blossoms.
My best season for the last 20 years while in my country the drought is disastrous.
