One rainy Sunday in May...

...we went for a walk with Barca of course...
 ...to the open antique market....
 ....spotting great embroideries....
 ...porcelain....

 ....shells and wooden eggs....
 ...glassware.....
 ....frames and paintings.....

 ....crystals.....
 ....metal objects.....
Greek souvenirs....
The old fisherman ........
 ...gorgeous porcelain figurines....

 ...a fantastic majolica set....
 ....and then we went to the open flower market as it was Mother's Day.....
 ....spotting great flowers....

 ...and plants with strange names like saucepan(!)or stuffed(!) meaning that they are peppers for various uses....
 ...and mojito.....
 ....buying a beautiful flower in a pot for our mum....

....smelling blooming magnolias....
 ...and trying to take close up pictures of insects that don't sit still....
 ...or of Barca who doesn't sit still either....
 My son brought me roses from his dad's garden....

 ...don't they look  beautiful next to the vintage blue frosted ashtray I bought from the antique market?That was my only purchase!
But it was a good day...........
