That island looks beautiful, Danis. Are you saying that it was cooler there ? I never knew that island exists until you told me about it now. 35C is hot enough in my book. I hope that it will cool down for you soon. I would like it to be just a tad warmer here. Our winter this year has been especially cold. Not cold enough for snow, but still, cold enough and that it makes me wear scarves and gloves and more layers of clothing even inside the flat where I live. I hope you had a lovely time on the island. Thanks Danis.....

Hi Mary, yes ,Thessaloniki the town where I live has now 35C ...I spend my summer vacations last week in Astypalea island and you can imagine how I feel now....

That's in Celsius, by the way....

So sorry about the hot weather, Danis. I see where my dad was born, (in Kyrenia, Cyprus) that they had 43 yesterday. Do you get it that hot where you are, Danis ? I hope not..

Thank you skip, I just came back from my work and I saw 13 comments under this photo! Now here the time is 16.00, so I suppose I missed your surprise...!

What a sweet neighbour you have, Skip. I like when we can get on with our neighbours.. :)
2010-08-02 11:59:00
Yes they do sell them smaller Mary, it's just me, I need to give in and buy one, and you are so lucky to have that stuff taken care of, but there are some good and bad points no matter where we live. yes, my neighbor is nice, sometimes he even sneaks over and does alot of the work for me,,,and then when I see him I say, the lawn fairy was in my yard again :)...and he always plays like he dosen't know anything about it.

You are very welcome, Skip. Do they not sell leaf blowers in different sizes ? I wouldn't really know about that, seeing that I live in a flat and we have a gardener come here every few weeks to cut our lawn and do the gardening. Maybe you can rake some of the leaves and mow the other parts. Your neighbour is kind to let you borrow his leaf blower... :)

Those are both good ideas Mary, and sometimes I do use the lawn mower to mulch them but the trouble is I have so many trees and the leaves are thick and the lawnmower can only take so much, and my neighbor lets me use his leaf blower sometimes, but he's got a heavy big one and you'd laugh if you saw me with it..I'm tall but small boned and I was having a hard time with it...anyway your sweet to try and help. :)

Oops, sorry for the mix up in what I said here, Skip. I didn't go over the mistakes in that very well, did I ?... :(
2010-08-02 11:18:40
That would be really hard to rake up so many leaves. Could you put the lawnmower or a mulching mower over them instead and that you they can be chopped up ? Of course, the leaves would have to be dry to do that. And there are those leaf blowers too, but they are rather noisy. A neighbour across the road where I live uses one of them from time to time and it can be quite loud... :(

Autumn is my favorite, and least favorite time of year, but only because I have to rake up all those beautiful leaves, :) Beautiful pic Danis! btw,I have a surprise for you, if you answer I'll know your around tonight.
2010-08-02 10:45:13
I'll do that, Poppy. Many thanks for the tip... :)

You should visit Lapland! On a good year, the colours are so brilliant that they'll just blind you. Do a google picture search on the word 'ruska' and you'll see some of it...
2010-08-02 10:10:23
Yes they do, but not as pretty as they have autumn/fall in America. I really love looking at autumn pictures from there... :)
2010-08-02 10:07:55
Do the leaves turn colour in the autumn Down Under?
2010-08-02 10:02:06
I'm like that every year here when summer is about gone, Poppy... :(

Magnificent autumn pic, Danis! - The unusual heat wave we've had in Finland lately has made me long for autumn...
