1st May 2011 - Happy MAY Day To All! Καλή Πρωτομαγιά σε Όλους!

Camomile flowers all over... an experience for all senses
We can share the beautiful view (Double-click on the picture to enlarge it)
but not the incredible  camomile-scented atmosphere.
Just close your eyes and imagine you are in the field with us...


Ist May, Πρωτομαγιά 

May Day today, a beautiful day in Athens and a wonderful day to do what we normally do on this day... enjoy the beauty of the countryside!

 




After a great lunch - salads, souvlakia feta cheese and our own homegrown Cretan wine and extra virgin olive oil - we set off to go up to Pendeli Mountain to spend precious quality time enjoying the Athens' Spring and the magnificent colours of nature all around us and, of course, picking wildflowers for our usual May Day Wreath or Stefani! 
Blue...


Blue in close-up...

Purple...

Red...

White...

Green...

Blue and Purple...

Purple again...

Trees...

Green, green, beautifully green hills...
the benefits of an unusually rainy Athens April

Love this mixture ...grass flowers inter alia

Luscious green Pendeli mountain side

 Athens at our feet...


 One of the burnt out tree (devastation) but at it's roots
a small pine tree can be seen struggling to grow...(hope)

 It really is marvellous seeing all the new life - the small pine trees that hundreds of volunteers have planted springing up all over the mountain...






 Rock where the soil has gone...

 Lots and lots of marble...
after all this is the mountain that gave 
the Parthenon its sparkling white marble


We gathered our flowers and carefully made our May Day wreath...but as we couldn't decide which May Day wreath photo to share, we decided to leave them all!





Kai tou xronou!

Hope your day was as beautiful as ours!
Καλή Πρωτομαγιά!

Kali Protomagia! 

Happy May Day!
