An egg and lemon sort of day...



Some days you think you'll do one thing ...

... and end up doing something complete differeny ...

... I was thinking this the other day while picking lemons as big as grapefruits  for a lovely old lady in the village.

I'd gone out to pick up a basket of eggs ... a gift from a friend ...

... then outside in her garden stood Yia-yia waving and calling "yoo-hoo"...

... "Limonia!" she had called ....

... "yes please" I replied ....

... She handed me an empty plastic crate and bid me "Ella, ella" as she led me to the Lemon tree ...


... My reward was a bag of lemons some bread and some baked eggs ..,


... The baked eggs were delicious ...


... brown and nutty ...

... yummy !

Καλό Πάσχα ! Happy Easter !



Well, I suppose Easter is as good a time as any to resurrect this old blog...

...It's been a long, cold and very wet winter on this little Greek island...

...but yesterday, bang on schedule, the sun came out and the grey skies disappeared...


...just in time for the Easter Barbecues...

Καλό Πάσχα !  ....Χριστός Ανέστη !
