...all home grown !

Festival



Yesterday was the feast of Agios Ioannis ...



...and it was the festival is of "Klidonas" (Sign or Oracle) here in the village...


..Mayday wreaths are burned on a bonfire and the youngsters from the village leap through the flames...


...And  unmarried girls can discover who her potential husband will be..

...or so they say...

I'd like you to meet the chairman...


About two years ago  found and old broken chair by the bin...

....I brought it home and that winter scraped of all the layers of old paint...

...re-glued all the joints and gave it a fresh coat of varnish...

...and waited for the chairman to come around to give it a new seat...

...I missed him last year but he came by yesterday evening...



...and in about half an hour...

...did this...


... Clever man !
