>> Monday, March 16, 2015 – life on Symi in March, Pedi Valley, Spring on Symi, Symi Visitor Accommodation, Symiot traditions
|Weathered but still smiling, the little sphinx on the rooftop of the Stani patisserie next to the Symi Visitor Accommodation office looks happy in the spring sunshine.|
|Last week it was a broom hanging from an electricity cable in the harbour (it is still there if you are interested). This week it is a blue plastic watering can wedged between some reinforcing rod on a building site in the Pedi valley.|
|Leaves are unfurling all over the valley. There are drifts of pale wild cyclamens in the shady places and clumps of wild garlic jostling for space with the first daisies.|
|Mother and child enjoyed the midday sun near the power station in Pedi.|
|A sure sign that summer is on its way - the ice cream fridges are back at the kiosks! Okay, there isn't anything in them yet but it is a declaration of intent! This is the Kampos bus stop in Chorio.|
Have a good week.
