    Wonderful pictures....but i agree with the person that said Brrrrrrr. When we got ready to move, we considered several places. The first thing that came to mind was, find a place where the locals have never seen a snowshovel in their whole lives. lol We love it here in Florida!

    Hi GiovannaD

    Very nice pictures It also snowed in Jerusalem last night for the second time this winter but much less than in Greece. I wonder if we have seen the last of the snow for this year!

    Beautiful view!It must be great to wake up and see this lovely site! And with all your orchids, just fantastic!
    Since I know how HOT it can be in Athens in the summer, this location of yours must be great at that time of the year! Thanks for sharing!

    It must be amazing for you to see your normal views covered with snow. We have 4 to 5 months of it here and it can get very old, very fast!. Thank you for sharing.

    It is kind of boring though...having to stay inside because of the icy roads...It's very rare for that much snow, it only happens every 2-4 years. Usually we get some snow, about 5-10 cm, about once a year. Lately the weather's gone crazy...a summer of 35-40C from late June to late August and now this harsh winter.
    This is no greenhouse effect, in a greenhouse everything's nice, mild and warm...Kind of like Singapore :P
