Fresh lemonade on the terrace

City balcony design

Happy new week my friends! We're having our Holy Week here in Greece and heading towards Easter this weekend. That means preparations, baking and cleaning and, of course, a holiday mood of relaxation and enjoyment. The weather is so beautiful and warm, exactly how one would describe the ideal spring time. After cleaning up and decluttering I had loads of time to enjoy the warm sunrays  on my moms terrace along with a fresh lemonade made of handpicked lemons from my village.
My mom lives only a few stories above me, in the same apartment building as I do. Good thing is that she has the most beautiful terrace filled with dozens of plants and flowers she takes extra good care (I've already told you what a great green thumb she has). I'm overly attached to this place as this is the one I grew up in and spend all my summers playing with my little brother, so feel free to picture me running up and down like crazy on my tiny bicycle, or being just vaguely pretty (that's me in the last shot, posing in the same terrace, some 25 years ago, hehe). 
Oh, those little pleasures in life! xoxo

    1. Ναι, μοιάζει αλλά δεν είναι. Είναι ένα έιδος φτέρης, ευίστητο και μικροκαμωμένο. Λέγεται Αδίαντρο.
