Monday s Happenings.

Breakfast with our own homegrown strawberries. Don't they look lovely. I can also tell you that they smelt delicous and tasted fantastic too. Looks like we are going to get a good crop this year. Other gardening happenings are that my potatoes are all up and so are the onions that we planted. We have also planted some tomatoes and auberginnes.

Did I tell you that I go to a Camera club? Well that happens on a Monday morning. There are just a handful of us but we like it. We just want to take better pictures and learn to tweak them a little. The above image of a windmill was my entry into this weeks competition and the rose from my last post was last weeks entry. When I came out of the Camera club I saw Jude and Chris drinking coffee. They were off on a bike ride with there new scooters

And here they are going through our village. Jude is the one in the front.

Have a lovely Tuesday all!

News roundup.

Hi All,
It's been a while since I last posted so I have little snippets of this and that to report. While I was away in England my Hubby won a pool contest and recieved a Champions trophy.

The garden is all turned over and weeded and the potatoes and onion sets all planted. The potatoes are now just pushing through.

This Aurm lily was ever so lovely so I took a photo and it came out this delightful shade of pink, funny that as it was white.

I took this one at 11.30 at night. Ian held a torch behind the bloom while I took the photo. What do you think?

Walking through the olive groves with Lucky, we came across this small church. I tried the door and it opened.
Most of them are decorated like this.

We have had some lovely sunny weather these last few days, but today the clouds rolled in and turned black and along with it came the thunder and lightening. Then came the torrential rain with a good measure of hailstones thrown in. The poor tourists so far this month have not had very good weather. One day the sun will come out and stay out for the summer, wish it would hurry up.

Catch you all again soon, I promise.

Easter Weekend.

Easter weekend I went down to see two of my sons and grandchildren in the London area.
The weather was BEAUTIFUL. It was nice spending some time with them for I have not seen them all for quite a while.
Two of my sons

We did shopping.
We did bingo, no we never won.
We did a car boot sale. Yes I managed to spend some money there.
We did a garden centre. Here we saw lots of animals.

The kids loved it. We also had a ride on a steam train.

All in all I had a lovely time. It made a nice change.
I then travelled back to Crete on the day of the royal wedding.
Since then the weather here has improved so we did a bit of gardening.
With there been so much rain this winter and early spring the weeds have been running riot on our small plot. Some of the grasses have been as tall as me.
We are winning I think. Yes we will soon have it whipped into shape. Got some seed potatoes and onion sets to put in.

What are you all doing now?
