The upside of rain?

When we woke up to a second day of rain in Greece, Jeff mentioned he had always thought of Greece as warmer. Haven't we all. The Greece of "Mamma Mia" and "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" has more in common with the Caribbean than the Midwest, but Northern Greece, land of high flying monasteries and Mount Olympus, is a whole other color on the weather map. Luckily, all the rain seemed to make for lush landscapes and green hills, sprinkles of flowers and roses climbing whitewash.

Lovely - my favorites are the morning glories. Your great grandmother was fond of them and could paint them beautifully. I saved one of her plates for you and when you unpack it someday, I hope you'll remember this colorfully wet day in Greece! xom
