Plants do many things for people of Croatia. They are the main ingredient of many traditional drinks (especially stronger ones such as rakija or maraschino). From ancient times, they were used in local medicine, and as spices, they provided Croatian delicacies with new layers of flavor and aroma. In some cases they are the best shade you can hope for. And in case like this, they provide perfect scenery to already beautiful site. The photo was taken by a local of owner of Rakalj Rural Holiday Houses (Rakalj being a town in Istria).
