The last of the decorations came down in our house on 12th Night, following the British tradition. Last to go was the garland on the door, to be replaced with the "Big Onion" - Scilla Maritima or Urginea Maritima is the scientific name for what most Greeks know as the squill bulb hung on to the front door on New Year's Eve.
Well, it has to be said that this year July is not the way it normally is. We have experienced some wonderfully cool evenings, quite a bit of rain, waterspouts yesterday, and today this lovely rainbow with its pot of gold at the bottom of our garden. Must be a good omen!
