Flora and one fauna (faunum?)
There was a bit of rain recently and it brought out the snails, which Malta seems to have in great numbers. They have adapted remarkable methods of surviving heat and dry. I've also included some flowering plants. I think the blue tree is a jacaranda, but I'd welcome correction is that is wrong. Then comes a bush(?) that looks like it might be a poinsettia, but I don't know. If I ever did move to Malta or a dry place, I think I could warm to succulents. One of the photos is of a succulent in flower.
