A POEM A DAY - SEA DAFFODILS


The low dunes on the 'Deveses' beach, near Pego are covered in white flowers which release their perfume in the evening. The leaves and bulb are mainly buried in the sand, leaving the low lying white blooms. The latin name is 'pancratium maritimum' and it is also known as sand daffodil, sand lily or St Nicholas lily. In some areas of the Mediterranean it is near extinction so it is good to see it growing on our local dunes.
