in Chrystafa, Parnon, Peloponnese

Here they’ve taken the sky for a colour chart.

Chora – part of Exochori, in the Mani

The sky fills in the ruins. Brand new shutters.

I cheated a little – pulled the chairs forward a couple of feet into the light.

can and crocus at Pirgos Dirou in the Mani

The can is labelled ‘crinos’, which means lily. I found a bin for it after taking the photo. The crocus is C. goulimyi, one of many autumn flowering crocuses in the Peloponnese.

All except one of these photos – the one in Papigo, the last one – were taken on one side of these mountains or the other.


A favourite ruin. If I was young, rich and stupid this is the ruin I would restore. Alas, I’m only stupid. I though I might compromise by painting the kitchen those colours but it’s hard to find the right shades in B and Q.

Look! Blue and yellow again.

  2. Making something work for a picture isn’t cheating. My friend Vanessa’s blue that you saw on a ceiling in Ramsgate is from a company I Bristol I think. It’s intense. Wd you like me to ask her for the name of her suppliers? Lovely pictures
