Something from my garden….

No one promised me a rose garden so I planted one myself. They were all chosen for their scent because a rose should smell like a rose. The pink rose bush was a gift from my younger daughter and it is very prolific. I have had many a bouquet from it. The yellow one starts out a deep orange and turns into sunlight in colour. One of the nice thing about roses is they can bloom up until the snow falls, also roses make a perfect subject to paint….

Omonoia Square by swo8 Blues Jazz from the album Efharisto in iTunes

We spent a week in Rhodos and a week in Crete, then we headed by boat to mainland Greece. It was an over night trip and we arrived in Piraeus the port of Athens at 7:00 am. It’s a minuet walk from the docks to the subway but there were all sorts of taxis waiting to pick us up. Back packs in hand we walked to the subway and headed into the main area of Athens. It was raining and we didn’t have a place to stay. The first place we tried was full but the second one had room for us. Omonoia Square was a short walk from our hotel. This is a rather seedy area of Athens but central to everything.
