My apologies for not replying to your comments. Believe me I have tried. The rationing continues. If I wake in the middle of the night, as I tend to do, I shall post this then.
In the meantime; my thanks to Jan. We have supplementary questions which may earn you even more admirers: to wit, are these fungi poisonous, and how likely are we to see them in the UK? I now have a reputation to keep up. Members of the group zealously pointed out fungi to me to photograph today. I haven’t looked at the results, so they may be an out of focus blur. I don’t think I managed to catch a pic of the adder we disturbed I a sunny path. It shot away from us, and must have thought the paparazzi had turned up. It may well still be recovering.
Sally: I don’t think Publisher is a good idea. If you are using a tablet try the wordpress app or Blogsy and upload media in the usual way. When are you next in the UK?
Pix: as Sal (Japonica Flowers) will tell you better than I, the Greeks attitude to cats is one of acute dislike. Obviously there are exceptions, but an awful lot of animals scavenge about tourist resorts, endless kittens starve in winter, and no doubt puppies too. I have seen goats hobbled, despite the fact that it is illegal so to do in the EU. When I was here a few years back one of my friends reckoned the cats recognised English and would approach anyone speaking that language. The vet I take MasterB to regularly comes to Greece to neuter cats for a charity.
Celia and Gilly: today was gorgeous. I am very lucky the weather is so good, but if cannot take the credit. Today I was in long sleeves as I have brought one long sleeved shirt and one short sleeved one, and the latter was drying having been worn yesterday. And Celia, the whole group is eating the strawberry tree fruits! I think the will be a surge in the nurseries of the UK.
My apologies to anyone else who has commented. I managed to see these before the connection failed.
I also realise there are several messages I thought I had sent which have gone nowhere. More middle of the night activity.
