A native sps of the Canary Islands, common on Lanzarote.
Named after Gui Crescent Fagon a 17th century physician and botanist.
I am greatful to Ori ( Fragman) for pointing out my error in initially describing it as an Endemic of the Canaries. It is found quite widely in Cyprus, Spain, Balearics, Malta, Cape verde and even in California and Chile. I have only seen it in the Canaries.

A very fine capture of Fagonia cretica among the pebbles. Excellent view illustrating how they grow and showing the leaves. Well done!They're very beautiful flowers and you may have seen my close-up I posted recently.
TFS and regards, Ulla
nice pic, I thought it was also found in Crete and Cyprus. TFS Ori
Agréable publication que j'aurais préférée dans un cadrage plus serré afin de percevoir plus subtilement la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
