    sand lilies in palamutbuku

    Palamutbuku or my beach is one of the rarest places that you can find
    sand lilies in the nature ..Its one of the miracle of the world because you can see suddenly flowers in the middle of a sandy beach..some words about his nature
    Pancratium maritimum or Sea Daffodil is a species of Amaryllidaceae native to the Mediterranean region and south-western Europe. It grows on coastal sands or just above the high tide mark. Other vernacular names are Sand Daffodil and Sand Lily. The Latin maritimum means "on the sea-coast".
    P. maritimum is a bulbous perennial with a long neck and glaucous, broadly linear leaves, evergreen, but the leaves often die back during hot summers. Scape to 40 cm. Flowers 3-15 in an umbel, to 15 cm long, white. Corona two-thirds as long as the tepals. The flowers have an exotic lily scent. Flowering in August to October.
    Easy to grown but requires a very sunny position and a very well drained, sandy soil. Need hot summers to induce flowering and is often a shy bloomer in cooler climates.Tolerates temperatures down to about -5°C. Propagation by seeds or division after flowering. Seedlings may flower in their third or fouth year.
    The Hebrew name for the flower is related to the rose of Sharon mentioned in the Song of Solomon. It is commonly assumed by most people in Israel that, the Sharon plain being on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the Biblical passage refers to this flower...

    Knidos

    What really impressed me in Knidos is the fact that you can walk along the city walls and discover on your own the remains of the ancient houses, monuments, temples.

    And just walking around in this peaceful place we have seen something that seemed to be a mosaic and taking away the dust we have discovered an old beautiful mosaic.

    From this point of view I think Knidos is a paradise of the ones who love to discover the things by their own.

    Swimming in Knidos

    How could we miss the baths in the two seas that meet in Knidos?

    Although there is no beach in Knidos properly arranged, you can have a bath in both of the beautiful bays.

    Knidos is an oasis, a corner of heaven where you can enjoy the genuine nature in peace and tranquility without being disturbed by too many tourists.
