Beautiful Spring on Samos!

Samos in May, what a joy! Everywhere it's green and beautiful! The grasses are high and still green. Flowers are blooming in many colours, like here on the castle hill in Pythagorion.

A combination of several videoclips - mainly with focus on red Poppys - that I took in (early) May 2011 on the east aegean island of Samos in Greece.
Music performed by musicians from Samos: Jiannis Loulourgas (bouzouki, vocals) and Kostas Mitsos (guitar) from the village of Pythagorion.

Want to be there, between olive trees in a meadow covered with Poppys? Try this one here:

Flowers blooming in many colours close to the Logothétis castle in Pythagorion:

Blue sky, white clouds, yellow flowering broom (Sparta), everywhere beautiful green landscape .... , middle of May 2011. This year, vegetation was almost three weeks behind "normal schedule" due to cool weather in April and first half of May.

Red poppies on the side of the road leading to the monastery Timiou Stavrou, May 2011.

Landscape below Vourliotes on the north coast, end of May 2011.

When the broom (Sparta) starts to bloom, the landscape turns yellow on Samos:
