Dear Friends.
I'm keeping on sharing the photos that I've taken in Artvin. This one is a bit strange. I wasn't sure that I should send this photo or not. But I decided to send. Because I know that on the world, lots of people have never seen before a tea flower , like me. I'm 44 but it is the first time that I see a tea flower, even everyday I trink lots of cup tea.

You can find very easily some info about Tea chinensis or other tea species on the internet. But I said that before, Artvin has a very interesting and very rich flora. Imagine you can at the same time live in a very close, mild mediterannean climate, tangerine and olive trees near black sea coasts and next to Coruh river, and few steps later you can see spruce trees and cold snowy wether like siberian.

As you know, tea plants grow on the world moist, hot asian area. But here is never rains monsoon, not very hot. But in the east Blacksea coasts it rains very much. Because of this here is very moist and mild climate. The people grows here tea and this plant is very important as an economic product.

You can see another view of this flower as a workshop that I've posted it.

Greetings and thanks for all.

I use my 2x KENKO Tele Converter during take. And dear Ricardo, don't angry with me for file size, It was 185 Kbyte at first but a little carelessness I saved it as 805 pixel, after resizing it got 69 kb! I never understood, how is got that, sorry!
