Plants on Asinara

Today we went to Asinara, an island off the northwest coast of Sardinia. It has has a checkered past being a penal colony, a hospital and a place for fishermen to stop. Now it has been cleared of settlement and is a sanctuary for white donkeys, goats and wild sheep. Few large tree grow and the plant life in spring is very orange. Euphorbia, lichen and a relative of the fennel family feature below.
