Married to the lovely Geoffrey, my soulmate. I have two fantastic big kids,both married, whom I love and miss every day I'm not with them, but I know they're living and loving their lives and we make up for time when we get together.I now have three granddaughters too...
Some flowery photos to start, the first is Anemone Hortensis, this is an awful photogragh of them, they are tiny things, simple but beautiful and are endemic to Crete and Karpathos.
I've shown you these iris before but forgot to name them, Iris Cretensis. The hedgerows are full of them at the moment. They have short stems and a delicate perfume.
This is another awful photo, this time it's of Nikithiano in the foreground, a small village near us.If you look carefully you will see a row of 3 windmills at the top ofthe village. I took this photo to show the other rows of windmills on the hillsides beyond. I think you can just make them out, little white dots? Most of them have been left derelect but one in Nikithiano is an arts and crafts shop.
Looks rather drastic, this is a well pruned olive tree! Takes some guts to do it to your trees but nothing seems to kill them and in a couple of years they will be covered in new growth.
