    • Thank you for nominating me for an award. I’m sorry I couldn’t see the link, it didn’t open. Is it this kind of award where you have to nominate 10 others etc.? Regards Mitza

    • Thank you, Judie. Looking at my photos I still feel the wonderful warm sun of Greece on my skin. Today it was awkward outside, heavy showers of sleet, a cold strong wind. Virtual hugs, Mitza

      • hehe, that’s really to complain about first world problems. Wish I would be in Greece now and see all the wonders that come out at this time. They have a lot of beautiful wild orchids, tree heath etc., really wonderful

  1. What an exotic burst of colour and natural drama! Pomegranates are so special and I would be so excited if I had actually seen one growing! I really love the Banana flower too. These flowers are all so other worldly. A very welcome break from the cold and wet and as soothing as a short burst of tropical sun.
    Thank you….Karen.

    • The pomegranate is even from my own tree which I have in Greece. It has some huge fruits in autumn and they are so juicy and sweet. I once made a filling for a chicken with the seeds, pine nuts and some raisins, was delicous.
      Looking at my photos makes me feel warm. The sun gives you a wonderful feeling like being wrapped into velvet. Thank you for looking at all my photos, Karen, regards Mitza

      • How perfectly lovely to have your own Pomegranate tree! I am loving the sound of your chicken dish. I feel that having a Pomegranate tree is a magical thing…like having a Unicorn! Have a good day Mitza

      • That’s really a very cute comparison with the Unicorn. The Pomegranates are a symbol of fertility like the fig, which we have, too (13 different kinds from April to November). Try this recipe and tell me if you liked it. Get well soon, regards Mitza

      • I LOVE figs. I am wondering how different they are from each other and if you have favourites. Yes, I will be making the stuffing when I get back to normal health. Being ill has given me time for my blog though, so every cloud has a silver lining! Thank you for your good wishes, Kind Regards, Karen

      • The figs differ by color (green/brown) and size. But there’s nothing more delicious than to pick a fresh fig from a tree, no matter what color they have. Our friends have hugs fig trees and made marmelade out of them. Together with plain joghurt it’s delicious. Maybe you can buy fig marmelade where you live and try it. Being ill is not all roses, Karen, but you can put some roses in a vase or look at roses in wordpress and feel a bit better. Sometimes the best things get created out of boredom. Get well soon, regards from rainy and cold Hamburg, Mitza

      • Figs eaten when they are warm from the sun are beautiful. I will look out for a recipe for some kind of fig compote or marmalade, with yoghurt, it would be divine! Wet and cold is so difficult, it is supposed to be warming up here. I want to feel the warmth of sun on my skin-just like the figs!

  2. Hallo liebe Mitza. Deine Aufnahmen sind einfach ein Traum. Die Farbe und Formen dieser außergewöhnlich Gewächse sind einfach unglaublich schööön. Ich genieße diesen herrlichen Bilder.
    Jetzt hat es mich auch erwischt. Habe eine Verkühlung abgeräumt. Hatte sogar leichte Temperatur. 😦
    Ich hoffe du bist wieder ganz fit.
    Alles Liebe und einen guten Start in die Woche!!

    • Ja, liebe Stefanie, die Natur ist eben im Goldenen Schnitt geschaffen, und das empfindet der Mensch als schön. Ich erinnere mich auch noch so gut an die herrliche Wärme, den azurblauen Himmel, den zarten Duft von Jasmin, Oleander, die schönen Falter.
      Tut mir leid zu hören, dass Du auch krank warst. Diese Erkältung geht wirklich durch die Welt. Ich bin wieder fit. Wünsche Dir auch einen guten Start in die Woche und ganz lieb gute Besserung, liebe Grüße Mitza

    • Dear Ellen, thanks for your approval. It seems you had a much harder winter than we had and I can understand that you are waiting for spring. Weather here is not so nice, either, very windy, shower of sleet, but I have been riding my bike twice. Was exhausted by pedalling against the heavy wind. Warm regards Mitza

    • Thank you, Eva, for your wonderful words. Maybe you can even feel the wonderful warm sun, the scent of wild herbs and the buzzing of the bees. Nature has been created in the golden ratio and that’s why we think it’s so beautiful. I like to make macro shots a lot, makes me feel like a butterfly. Hope you don’t have such an ugly weather as we have. It’s awkward, sleet showers, dark grey, windy. Where’s spring? Regards Mitza

      • Love your words “feel like a butterfly”, the best I ever heard! Spring is on the way here, we have the most gorgeous sunshine and the trees are budding some already blooming! Sorry to hear that the weather is not the best over there, but is March and hope soon everything will turn bright and warm! Have a wonderful week Mitza! ~ Eva
