A bit of sun to cheer us rain-drenched bloggers up!



Its cold and its wet, and I miss a bit of sun! So I've made a collage of some of the Greek landscapes we came across on our holidays.

Sometimes we hired bicycles and careered over little tracks, up and down steeproads, and discovered lots of little corners untouched by tourism, or even the 20th century! (We haven't been to Greece in thr 21st century, unhappily :( )

Other odd corners we came across in towns, or villages. Everywhere plants in pots,m or if pots not available, old olive oil cans, anything! Bouganvillia (hope I've spelled that right!) tumbled over houses and balconies. Swallows and martins swooped up under the eaves, and the times we went in the early spring, there were flowers covering the hillsides.

Ah, I feel warmer just thinking about it! Enjoy the photos!

There's nothing like looking through holiday photos to cheer one up on a rainy day. I've never been to Greece, so I rely on people like you to share their experiences!

I agree, VS. I want to go to Greece someday, and your photos make that desire stronger!

We're having wonderful weather here -- highs in the low 80's during the day and low 60's at night. I really wish I could send you some of this!
The photos of Greece are lovely. You'll have to visit there again.
