Poppytalk Summer Colour Week 2011 rainbow

There is so much taking place here and so much I want to share with you that I decided to make several blogposts and arrange for them to be posted while I am away,one every day.
I will be away for the rest of the summer. At the summer house we don't have Internet access and hubbie will arrange for something cheap and flexible like a card but that means it will be only for short time on the Net and just to see e-mails. Of course we will come and go in the city for certain chores,bill paying and of course my project which is due on July 31st and I have to be on time.
Today's colour for Poppytalk is rainbow!One would say this is difficult to figure out. Unbelievably so I took a couple of  "rainbow" photos in June!
Also two of my "blue photos" were featured in Poppytalk page.
Look here:

And this one too.

Here are the rainbow photos!

And secondly,the blogs I follow on the right column are so beautiful and I read them all but at some of them for some reason I cannot leave comments.It must be something with blogger. I hope you understand.

Enjoying while learning.

Poppytalk picked my photo as one of their favourite,how great is that!
And amazingly so this photo is from a yellow rose from the rose bush my son gave me as a Mother's Day gift years ago and it is still thriving!
Here's the photo!

On another theme now.
All over Greece at the time the Ministry of Education is doing seminars for teachers of all faculties.
I applied to attend one of them. It will be three three-day seminars(June,September and December), certain studying of books (the theory on the New School, new systems of teaching etc).
The first three-day seminar that took place on 22nd-24th June was a disappointment.I did not learn anything new. Hopefully there will be more info in the books I have to read till the end of July.One good thing that comes out of this though is that the group I was with were all nice ladies who are doing their best at their schools and we all came close together and hopefully some friendships or collaborations will emerge.
The school where the seminar was taking place is far away from home at the suburb of Polihni on the West but by the Ring Road it was only ten minutes by car. Hubbie took me twice there and I came back with two of the colleagues. I had to take a taxi once to go there and guess what I got in the first hybrid taxi in Greece!(Sorry no pic of the car,or the extremely kind and full of knowledge on his car driver!).
Anyway during the break I of course looked around and took some pics!(Another good thing about not smoking is that you have nothing else to do during the break but chat and see around!)
There was a narrow alleyway next to the school that led to another neighbourhood.It looks beautiful and it manages to hide an ugly empty building.

 Me of course.

 There was a blackberry bush.
 The empty half destroyed building that looked like an old factory.
 I can't see well from all the "learning",LOL!
 There was lavender in the alleyway.
 That attracted insects,butterflies, a feather!
 There was graffiti all over the walls.
 I saw that butterfly a second before it .....
 ...flew away!Can you see it here?(It is the moving figure on the top right corner!)
And that behind is the school we were at.
