It is always around this time of year on Crete, early March when we begin to really prepare for the new season. After a very mild winter, the snow line on the White Mountains isn't nearly as low as precious years. Which means for me that spring will be short & we shall be back to warm temperatures in just a couple of weeks.
But first let's enjoy spring on Crete first, with all the flowers blooming & bird's chirping.
Many shop owners have begun painting and/or finishing their remodeling in anticipation of a good summer.
This weekend is the carnival, followed by Clean Monday on the 3rd of March,, the start of Lent.
It starting to look like a bit like Rio in Rethymnon, where they are holding the 100year of Carnival in Rethymnon. The large parade is on Sunday with music, costumes & lots of crazy outfits. People from all over Greece come to party & enjoy the event.
So wishing all those involved to have a great time!
