Strawberry temptation...

My treat! ...Well, I wish it was!♥

Have a nice evening, folks!

This post I dedicate to my friend Anna Karin, with the blog "ArtandPlej", who also loves Beatles!

Dilapidated old house in Heraklion

When I see all these dilapidated, old, but still charmy, houses I dream about how one could fix them up...  How beautiful homes they would become!

In our backyard... Santolina chamaerocyparissus - Lavender Cotton

We have this plant in our backyard, but I don't know what it is...anyone?

...Now it's July 12th, 2014, and I finally know the name of this plant with the small yellow flowers on long stems and small, shaggy and kind of knobbly leaves! Cotton lavender is the name, and in Latin Santolina chamaerocyparissus.

By the beach in Glyfada

These pictures were taken in the beginning of March, 6 o'clock in the evening, at the beach here in Glyfada. Since then the light has changed so much! Isn't it wonderful with the lights changes?! How boring wouldn't it be if it was the same all the time, all the year around?

Yippee, I've gotten an award!

Dear blogfriends/readers...if it's still anyone out there?!...
I really don't know why I haven't updated this blog in such a long time...
I'm far away from being a proffessional photographer, but I really enjoy taking pictures!

A couple of weeks ago I had the honour to receive a blog award; "Liebster Blog", from Marina at Crete with the really nice and interesting blog "The Olive Farmer"! Thankyou so much, Marina!

 Marina, an olive farmer at Crete!

And this is my cute award! With the award follows two tasks...

  • You put a link to the blogger you got it from...(so tar it's easy!)
  • You pass the award on to 5 blogs with less than 200 followers and let them know about it with a comment in their blogs...
The second part is not easy, because I really enjoy all your blogs!

Anyway I have decided to hand it over to

  • Sigrid with the blog "Et oyeblikk" - amazing photography!
  • Ika with the blog "Ikas fotoblogg" - superb photographer!
  • Tove with the blog "Kairos Garden" - lovely stories from their hotel in northern Greece!
  • Mona with the blog "Monas fotoblogg" - her great photograps are like stories by themselves!
  • S-A Sandberg with the blog "SASfoto" -  beautiful pictures combined with text!
Congratulations and Celebrations!
