March Postcards from Symi

Buttercups glistening in an old stone terrace in Lieni.

Nature's delicate handiwork brings the wall of a ruin to life.

The freesias have been quite spectacular this year - they don't seem to mind 5 days of rain out of every 7.

When the sun comes out a cat just has to squirm and squirm and squirm in the warm earth.

Those grafts have taken.

A dolls' picnic party in the Pedi valley.

The landmark oak in Lieni is unfurling fast.

Chorio rooftops.  I wonder what is under that long red roof. That used to be the terrace of Syllogos restaurant, now sadly closed.

Meanwhile, down in Yialos, the clean up from November's devastating flood continues. Cars are still being fished out of the harbour by the bridge.

I am so glad I found this fabulous blog and amazing photos. We are planning on visiting Symi in late August for the first time. Can't wait.

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.
