I am sure I am embarrassing myself with this question, for sure the answer is obvious, but since botany is not my strong suit (yet), and I don't even have flowers or their colour to help me ID the plant, I would really appreciate your help.
Here are two photos I took on my way from XagÄ§ra to Ramla Bay, some meters after passing Calypso Cave (36Â°03'37.6"N 14Â°16'50.3"E), late last month (click for bigger version):
Thank you a lot!
(I need to add I don't have any problem at all with the OP!)
His username is not clickable so I suspect as much. In fact before answering I thought he had deregistered himself and may not even view my reply.
Just asking if perhaps by some accident you have allowed guests rather than only registered persons to post messages, which obviously is a bad idea for the prevention of spam.
maybe I can answer this myself. Iâ€™ve asked to be registered by writing an e-mail, following the instructions given on the page of the registration form (which is currently deactivated):

This website and forum is a treasure chest, so much to learn.
Over the last years Iâ€™ve got interested in the art of perfumery, started to read up on it. It seems that quite a few of the plants used in perfumery are growing on Malta, and given my love for the Maltese Islands â€¦ it was inevitable that I started to look more into the flora of Malta â€¦
Regarding the ignorance of most people ... I also find it remarkable, but I am afraid that this is true for all societies, not only the Maltese.
I am afraid Dittrichia viscosa would not survive an Austrian winter (winters got warmer recently, but still ...). So, for me having a plant on my balcony is not an option. But that's OK, I guess every plant has its "home", too. On the other hand - quite to my surprise - I came accross references on the internet that it does actually grow as a neophyt in very few regions of Germany (http://www.blumeninschwaben.de/Zweikeim ... richia.htm, they say it grows in the area of Ludwigshafen am Rhein) ... so maybe the microclimate here at my place, between the vineyards and the river Danube in Vienna, theoretically, might not even be too dissimilar ... (Dittrichia graveolens can be found in Austria)
