The Clouds are Back

What a colour!
Florina peppers and aubergines from my garden.

Early morning mist over Pedi Bay.

The autumn equinox is only days away and this morning we woke to mist and clouds.  Now that the clouds are back and the days are shorter Symi experiences what can only be described as a second spring.  We may not have rain for a few weeks yet but the more temperate weather combined with heavy dew falls and raised humidity is already reviving the vegetation.  The oregano bushes are unfurling new leaves, the thistles are turning purple from the top down and the squills will soon be punching their way through the sun baked hillsides.  In my own garden the aubergines and peppers are putting on a magnificent show.  They look so splendid it is a pity to cook them.

Dodecanese Seaways is teasing us with a few more bits of the October ferry schedule but still nothing from ANES.
Tonight the Symi Dream team, Neil Gosling and James Collins, are celebrating their 10th anniversary on Symi with a piano recital and slide show of Symi photographs outside their shop on the Kali Strata in Chorio.  The concert will start at 8 p.m

Have a good week.

The clouds are back.

It seems strange to see Autumn clouds on Symi. We were there this time last year and it was blue blue blue..until the last day when it rained hard.
I wish we could have been this year.

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.
