spring is springing

olive tree sculptureapple tree, rain, colour
the weeds are blooming, the sun is out, weather is warming up after a very short winter
and thoughts are turning to dyeing

calendula arvensis, a huge carpet

we flew our kites on "Clean Monday" first day of lent, a holiday. The first day of the longest and hardest fast in the orthodox religion, tradionally a feast day. in Greece we begin the fast with a feast- no meat, eggs or dairy products, but lots and lots of food
quite secular
