Time for tzatziki, souvlaki and Mythos......

I know you're used to me going missing every now and then ;-) but I have a good excuse this time! I'm off to a lovely Greek island this weekend.....  its time for a 'fix' of my favourite things; Greek salad, tzatziki, souvlaki, sunshine, beaches, Greek wine, Mythos beer........










This is a photograph I took last time we were there.....I like the way they  use catering cans for plant pots.

 
I've used clipping masks on both pictures (Lynn Grieveson at Designer Digitals) -  love them!





Back in a couple of weeks.......when I'll enjoy catching up on all your wonderful artwork.

Have a great time - it sounds like Paradise. I had a fortnight on Rhodes with one of our daughters years ago and that was wonderful. Your photos are beautiful - looking forward to seeing more when you get home.

Oh goodness me, doesn't it look just beautiful ... brings back my memories of Crete so intensely! Maybe we should organise an arty retreat out there, you know - one of those events where you pack a pair of knickers and some flip flops, and the rest of your case is full of arty stuff!!
