I've just edited my observation to correct the location.
Thanks Ophrys. Do you think all three tulips shown in the last photos are saxatilis?
I think so. In my experience, cretica is much lower to the ground and a whiter flower, whereas saxatilis is a bold, bright plant. I have always missed cretica's main flowering, as it flowers earlier than saxatilis, from February; whereas, I have always been there in April, picking up the last few I could find (but getting lots of saxatilis).

I didn't know that cretica flowers early. Have you found it at Omalos? Any other suggestions of where I can find it?
I was always based at Plakias on the south coast. It is easily found there, at the seaward end of the path on the headland, south of the resort, just before a tunnel. I've seen it elsewhere, but this is the easiest to pinpoint!
That could be easier to get to than Omalos in February if we have a snowy winter!
By the way, I want to thank you for your help in identifying my observations. I know iSpot is really for UK wildlife, and I can't believe my luck in finding an expert (yes, by my standards, at least, you are one!) on Cretan flowers to help me out. It's much appreciated.
