We Can Do It, Yes We Can!!
This post is for everyone who read the last post and tittered to themselves, thinking we'd gone mad, trying to clear an overgrown garden and get vegetables from it this season...
We didn't find any long lost tribe, in fact we didn't find anything! I thought we'd at least see a snake or vole or spider but no, just an old tree, rotting. That's the start of our winter wood pile then...
Geoff climbed up the rickety old windmill to try and get a better view.
From May 1st, as a precaution, you are not allowed to have fires out in the countryside,(we've all seen those awful photos of the wild fires in Greece,) so we shall have to leave half the garden untouched and pile the weeds and rubbish up until the autumn.
Judith, from My Cretan Life lives in Vrissis which is the next village up above.
I'm off to look for more wool this morning. A friend came over here, bringing all her crafty things, now she's decided to sell alot of it as she has arthritis.
The weather is good most of the time, each morning starts with clear blue skies but by the evening it's clouded over.
Temperatures are good though.
Geoff has gone off to work already, the jeep safaris are picking up, which is good.
So, as long as I can pick up a spade this afternoon, you know where I'll be.......................................
