Bazaar at Cindy's

There will be a bazaar for Flowers of Crete at Cindy's Bar near Pelagos in Aghios Nikolaos on Sunday, 13th September at 10.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. Everyone is welcome - please come and join us. Lots of home made produce, spicy chutneys, lemon curd, cakes, scones etc., books, bric-a-brac, Flowers of Crete bookmarks, T-shirts, postcards and pens. If you have anything to contribute or can help out on the day, please contact me or one of the other Committee Members. The flower season will be here soon, and we need to get out and about to record and photograph. Rosemary and I have also been invited to visit the Director of the Greek Orthodox Academy in Kolymbari to discuss ways that we can collaborate and we hope to make a trip to Hania in November. This will also give us a chance to photograph flowers which we have not yet recorded.

Catching up

Despite having a frozen shoulder I am busy getting the house ready for guests arriving on Sunday. I have had a wicked virus (in the real sense of the word) on my laptop which has destroyed almost everything, so the time has been a bit stressful. However, I have got the desktop up and running after a fashion and am trying to get myself organised to get on with some work. I've finally got to grips with the GPS and Google Earth, which isn't as daunting as I expected. The weather has cooled down a little thank goodness and I,for one, am hoping that we have seen the last of the scorching days. Can't wait for the rains to start so that Rosemary and I can get out into the mountains to enjoy the flowers again - it seems ages since we had an exciting day out.
