A Merry May Posy of Photographs for You

The view from Symi Visitor Accommodation today - bright bunting for Monday's VE Day parade and hooray!  The first water taxi is back in its berth!

The upper reaches of the Kali Strata, fresh whitewash gleaming in the early morning sunshine.

The next section down, below the bend.

The whitewashing team, contemplating the job ahead.

Morning glory lights up an old garden at the top of the Kali Strata, near villa To Plio.

Another old garden in Chorio.

The ubiquitous plastic tablecloth - what would we do without it?

May Day

There are still plenty of wild flowers about.

Amazingly, there are still some poppies around.

Olive blossom

The yachts are back.

Anvil clouds build up on the horizon every afternoon.


You have to be up early to catch courgettes in blossom as they shrivel away in the heat of the day.

The Poseidon is back and ready for the first round the island excursions of the season.

Abundant honeysuckle on the Kali Strata.

May Day

May Day

One really cannot improve on Mother Nature.

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.
