Hello Volcan,

Thank you for letting us know this plant I didn't know and for the note you let with your picture...

I like the pov you chose in order to let us see very well the interesting leaves against the white sky...

Cheers,

Michel

Merhaba Volkan,

Kum zambağını doğal ortamında görüntülemişsin. Benim de İstanbul-Şile'den çiçeklenme döneminde çektiğim kum zambakları var. Ne yazık ki bu nadir bitkimizi kıyılardan söküp bahçelerinde yetiştirmeye çalışanlar var.
Eline sağlık,
Ömer.
