Poppytalk winter colours 2011 Thursday Green

Today I spent quite a few hours in the hospital keeping company to my Godson while he is waiting to undergo an operation. We had a good time together and along with the other children in the ward we played games and read a book,talked and did puzzles. It was fun!
It is Poppytalk's Green colour today so here are a couple of my photos.
Here are seagulls playing on the grass in our school yard.
 A door of one of the buildings at my school.
 A plant that reminds me of a childhood neighbour who cut such flowers to decorate her home.
 Detail of the plant.
 The olive trees outside my classroom window.

 Reflections on the Thermaic Gulf.
And a little bit about yesterday's performance that we watched at the National Theatre of Northern Greece(Royal Stage).
It is called "Loxandra".It is about a woman who lives in Constantinople. I have read the book and also watched the black and white TV series years ago as a kid. It brings back so many memories of my Constantinople origins and my background.Also the leading actress of the TV series Betty Valassi reminded me so much of my beloved grandma Ariadne.
Anyway yesterday's performance was excellent. Here you can read something about it.
