Twittering Madly

We had torrential rain on Tuesday afternoon and evening after which a high pressure system moved into the area and the weather has been quite spring-like since. It is about 14 degrees today. The birds are twittering madly in the trees, the cats are a-courting and the bees are rolling themselves silly in the poppies. The last laggardly almond trees have opened and daffodils and hyacinths are perfuming balconies and terraces. Showers are forecast for tomorrow with possible windy weather on Monday but generally speaking the worst of the weather seems to be blowing itself out before it gets here.

Andonis is busy installing my new office computer which is all bells and whistles and I am looking forward to testing it once he is done. In the meantime I will share with you the hyacinths outside our office.

Have a good weekend.

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
