This week has been extremely cold and snowy for Greece.
We are always looking forward to snowy days as it is something rather rare in our country, especially for those of us who live in central and southern areas.
When snow covers towns, hills and mountains, snowmen at all sizes and ‘outfits’ appear and families head to the closest park or open area, to play with it and have fun, because it doesn’t last for long.
Now that I am writing, the snow has already melted and it might not visit us again for yet another year. But it is still very cold and the mountains in the horizon are covered in icy white.
Look how pretty the almond tree buds and tiny, pink flowers are .
Bright yellow marigolds, whose stems appear from underneath their snowy cover , look determined to survive and dominate the landscape , in a few weeks when spring arrives.
Oh the beauty of nature !
I’m glad the weekend has arrived , because it is nice to spend some quiet time at home when it is freezing cold outside .
My love to you all and thank you for your sweet comments.
Till next time,
It is hard to imagine it being snowy in Greece so I found your photos very interesting! Love the pretty flowers peeping through too! Wishing you a happy week, and keep cosy.ReplyDelete
Oh yes, the weather can be very cold in Greece, in winter ,especially in the northern areas of the country .Although southern areas and even the islands can be very cold and snowy,too. There are many ski resorts, as well.Delete

Well, I must say you surprised me with the words Greece and snow in the same sentence. The only white I picture in Greece is the beautiful seaside towns. Everything looks lovely in its blanket of white.ReplyDelete

You are right , most people think it doesn't snow in Greece , but it does , every year and some times the snow fall is very heavy.Delete
