Morning walk

When we were at Athens I walked  early in the morning with my little camera and I took these photos ! 
While I walked  I looked around and I saw this  garden  of ground floor apartment ! 
     Look the woman on left . She is planting ! I said good morning  and I asked the permission to take
        the  photos . She said yes and she turn back to her work !
       I think it is a little beautiful in a big grey town !!!
                               this big cactus  inside the garden of leaved house !
                          I asked the woman in balcony how old was this cactus and she said to me that
                          was 47  years old  and never frozen  !
                    Yesterday I  started to plant . I bought new plants  because  many of them had frozen .
                                                 Have a nice week !

  1. Hello Olympia:
    What a beautifully tended garden you spotted on your morning walk. It is so nice when people take a pride in their gardens and how pleasant it is to be able to look at it as you pass by!

  2. Hello Olympia!
    I am happy to read that you have started planting! This will make you happy too :)
    I loved the small garden.....so beautiful and colourful. What great ideas this lady has for making it a bright and happy place. The pots on the wall and on the window ledge are lovely and there is even a pretty lady looking from the window :)
    Those other plants in different gardens are very big! Amazing that the cactus is 47 years old!
    Thank you for taking your camera with you. I enjoy to see all these things.

  3. Beautiful, Olympia! It reminds me of home, Italy! The big cacti grow just the same, huge and tall, and, in Summer, they are all in bloom (beautiful flowers!)
    The tree laden with oranges, I really love! Tomorrow, in Italy, I'll be able to look at orange and lemon trees, again, and I'll smell apple blossom and seaweed! I so want to see the blue sea and the sky!

    Thank you for sharing a little bit of your beautiful Country with us!
    CIAO!

  4. I love the little garden that surrounds the apartment. How cool to have a cactus that old, they must be very hearty to withstand freezing temperatures.
    Have a lovely day!
    Hugs, Cindy

  6. Dearest Olympia, so sad to hear this news! I was worried about you! I know you are having hard times in Greece and then a loss within the family hurts allthemore. I am sending you and your family good thoughts and good wishes. Keep in touch! Big, warm hugs! xxxx Christa
