Signs for Christmas here

Only when I entered Blogland few years ago i found out that those plants are "Christmas plants", I like them very much.They are in full bloom now. Last week we made some fake cookies from real dough and too much food colors.This year Hanuka and Christmas are at the same time so we shall eat ginger bread and Sufganiot (donuts) at the same time.

Some quiet moments,The pictures were taken at the same time of one rare quiet afternoon.There is always one of the 3 that is unhappy with something, or wants something that we can not get at that time,or wants to eat/drink something that is not at the house at that moment. This time every thing was perfect.

 It took the snake catcher 35 or 45  minutes to come to my house.It was almost midnight when i hared strange noises near my door, Edmund the cat was not quiet also,he was bitten by a snake last year and we saved him,but this time i knew that the snake is big, very big.So i googled a snake catcher and after less than an hour the snake went away with the young man and with 350 euro.It is a lot of money, but you never argue with a snake catcher in the middle of the night.

The Mandevillas climbs on the olive tree, Edmund the cat has his daily sunbath.The world is OK.

No drama at all

The tree is down.Another lesson to be learned- sometimes the drama is only in my head. It took 10 minutes and the tree was down.The only sad moment was when i saw a big brown bird flying in circles where the tree was. I think it looked for her nest.

Inspired by Cro, (lady M  it was), i painted the metal chairs , 2 years late.  The palm tree will be cut down tomorrow because of the heavy constructions here.I know nothing about gardening, but sometimes my garden just looks beautiful; not for long , summer is almost here , the "yellow time" will be here soon.

For John

John asked me for some photos from here, so here they are. The first one above is what i see every morning from my window, the second is how beautiful this place is , the third is how beautiful it will be when all the machines will go away one day, and the last is my kitchen window, almost like John's window, but no one is asking for eggs here.
