Let's go for a swim in Kineta...

Or do you have something better to do...? I wish I was there, for sure.

Lovely old door made of wood and iron

On a tiny, abandoned house at Parou street in Agios Dimitrios I saw this wooden door with iron bars. I think it's beautiful!

Have a lovely weekend!

15A - old white gate with some rust and lots of bougainvillea...

Even if this gate has seen better days it gives so much positive energy! It's so beautiful, and romantic... There is hope..., and life is wonderful after all!

Have a nice Sunday evening and a great week!

The first poppy on "my" meadow

Just one single poppy, but of course impossible to miss...

Have a wonderful day!

Through the branches and twigs of a "lefka"

Wonderful colours in the sky yesterday afternoon, seen through the branches and twigs of a "Lefka" - "Populus something"...

Same tree in the middle of december. The Greek name "Λεύκα"("Lefka") is from its white bole. Lefkó means white.

Playing around a little...

Have a wonderful day & week!

Fading away...

This small house is abandoned and dilapidated at Ralli street in Voula, neighboring municipality of Glyfada. It has a big garden and could easily become a dream house...

The photo(s) of this beautiful red male cat I took in February last year and the other pictures 2 days ago. It hasn't changed much, but I didn't see the cat.

Have a nice day!

Wooden blue shutters

Wooden blue shutters on an old house which I guess flourished once.
The days goes by so quickly.

Have a nice evening!

Graffiti and flyers behind bars

I thought the flyers behind these rusty bars and the graffiti on this wall was interesting (in its ugliness)...

Withered weeds and afterlife

Often I find vissen and dried out flowers etc really special and beautiful. Maybe there is a life after death after all...

Catwalk (on fish)

In a park in Voula after our walk on the cape of Glyfada.

I really enjoyed watching this sweet cat walking around on top of the fish drawings in this park in Voula!

Old entrance door

I thought this entrance door, in an old apartment building in the center of Athens, was looking so nice when I was leaving.
With the lights from the street in the dark evening showing through .

The Greek flag!

The Greek flag and daytime moon photographed at "Kremasmenos Lagos" in Voula, Attica, on Sunday.

The flag of Greece is also called "sky blue-white" or just "Blue-white". The colours most probably comes from the blue sky and the white waves, or at least so it is commonly believed.

Old house with Trumpet Vine

An old house (unfortunately abandoned) here in Glyfada with a beautiful bush of Campsis radicans - Trumpet creeper or Trumpet vine.

I love this beautiful plant with its colourful, orange trumpet-like flowers. Trumpet vine is common as hedge here, most often together with a fence.

Have a nice day!

Tiny blue flower - Veronica Persica

So small you may not notice it! This wild flower with 4 blue petals is also called Persian speedwell, Large field speedwell, Bird's eye and Winter speedwell except for its latin name Veronica persica.

Dear child has many names!

Do you know the name of this flower? White beauties

A walk on the cape of Glyfada

My friend Filio and I took a walk on the cape of Glyfada (Attica) the coldest day this winter so far, +2°. It was snowing a lot in most parts of Greece and we had some snow flakes in Glyfada as well.

Unfortunately this beautiful cape is more or less closed to the public, so it's beauty is kind of unknown...!

Greetings from Glyfada!

Swedish cinnamon rolls... not exactly Greek, but... least these ones are made in Greece.

Care for a cup of coffee and a "kanelbulle"...?!

Have a great day!
