Symi Dream - Living on a Greek island

Meanwhile, this time last year…

Meanwhile, this time last year…

Well, almost this time last year. I was wondering what to blather about today, and I thought I’d have a look at my old folder of photos taken in 2020.

In order, between December 2019 and June 2020, these are a few shots from Symi through that year. They include:

A night at Rainbow (not been able to do that since last November), and heavy hail in the early months that scarred the plants. Cold clear days in January and February, but still time and suitable weather for the occasional afternoon glass of wine outside in the afternoon.

There were flowers in March and will be again soon, we had 18 degrees in April (we have already had this in January), the weather was warm in May, and the plants flowered right through to June where the following collection runs out. For now. I will no doubt do this again when I can’t think of anything else to talk, moan, mumble about in days to come.
