All cats come out in the sun, is a popular saying. Like them, I sunned myself. And these are a few of the things I snapped.
The open air market has flowers for sale. In cellophane and metallic-looking wrap, they stand proud: lilies, roses, petunias, freesias... People come and go and stare at them. Who will take them home?
The market also has olives. Lots of them. In all sizes, shapes and quite a few shades.
The lilies have blossomed. Those are cala lilies. Almost obscene. They remind me of Diego Rivera.
Surprisingly, so has jasmine! Yet, I can never be sure whether it is jasmine that has withstood the cold or new jasmine. It seems like I see jasmine all-year round!
With wisteria (glycine) I can be sure, though! These are the hypnotically fragrant, powdery spicy "grapes" of spring. Soon the whole place will be covered with them.
All kinds of things grow in the sun. Even clean socks!
Butterflies seem unaffected though! Harvesting the nectar...
There is retro-chic with a nod to bygone times. (I'd like to have an etched glass-door like that in my own verandah).
And then there's reto-retro! A 60s brand of lingerie and swimwear. Minoan-style...or not.
Shall we go in?
Sure, but let's first grab a bite!
