The month of November has long been the rainiest month in Greece. But, the rare ‘medicane’ (mediterranean + hurricane) that enveloped Greece this past Wednesday brought catastrophic flooding that took the lives of 21+ people, (many more have not been accounted for), and hundreds of people have been left homeless. This is the worst flooding Athens has seen in decades and it has left the country in a state of shock.
Global natural disasters are increasing by the day and whatever the cause, that fact is that we live in an unstable planet. Like our ancestors we have to adapt to the changes and continue to rebuild again. My sympathies and condolences to anyone who has lost someone to anyone who has lost a loved one the flooding, earthquakes and fires in recent times.
I don’t know what these flowers are called, but they sure do love my camera.
Δεν ξέρω πως λέγονται αυτά τα λουλούδια, αλλά σίγουρα αγαπούν τη φωτογραφική μηχανή μου.
This lucky little lady bug
has landed here to stay
To make my garden pretty
and keep the weeds away.
This beautiful, tall flower is perfect for weddings.
Αυτό το όμορφο, ψηλό λουλούδι είναι ιδανικό για γάμους.
The cherry tree was more productive this year. They’re so luscious and yummy. I’m off to the kitchen to make a cherry jam!
As a woman of my word I did indeed make my first cherry jam, and it is fantastic!
The beautiful and wild lilium flower. Glad I captured her before she quickly wilted away.
I caught a white butterfly up to no good in the lettuce leaves in the garden.

For all of the wonderful mothers out there that bring their nurturing, warmth and compassion to the world.
A beautiful cherry tree in the garden. I need to grow some raspberries too, as they are hard to find in Greece.
