The Greek name Apokries means abstention from meat, because after that, the period of Easter Lent begins.»  from http://athenscentre.gr/?p=4006

To sit around a table with friends singing lovely Greek songs is sooooo good, and every now and then taking a dance, what a lovely way to enjoy a Sunday!

Over to today Monday, I am sorry for tomorrow we will have to try to move this big Oleander

E9F671CE-AA58-42AB-B83D-C73825EB295C

Saturday when I had a shower suddenly the water did not run away, so I mooped and mopped and … Luckily clean water this time. Today the plumbers came, again, and this time they opened a hole just to the right behind the oleander, and me oh my, the roots of the oliander had detroyed the pipes from my bathroom and made the blockage!!! No wonder it looked so great!!!!                So poor oleander has to go, I will cut it as much as poss and try to move it.
