Kalamata, Greece

Caption: Iris is the Goddess of the rainbow and the messenger of the Olympian Gods. When the late afternoon winter sunlight catches this flower you can see the colours of the rainbow in all their glory. It makes you understand why the ancient Greeks venerated this flower which, in Greece, blooms in the very depth of winter.

About Granddad

Granddad

We are English, (except our dogs, who are definitely very Greek, having been abandoned strays who took us in out of the kindness of their hearts). We retired to Greece in 2003 to escape the phoney political correctness endemic throughout the Anglo-Saxon world and to mix with some real people again. We live in the Exo-Mani in the extreme South of the Peloponnesus, where the sea and countryside are beautiful and the weather is also less political (i.e. they don't tax sunshine yet). The site provides an opportunity for us to bore the whole world with our snapshots and for which we are duly grateful.
