There’s always a brief period of adjustment as we get settled into a new-to-us place in our Worldschooling travels. One of the biggest things that takes a moment to get used to is the sights and sounds and smells of unfamiliar flora and fauna. There was a surprising symphony of birdsong from the Bush Preserve in Australia, the clip-clop of horses hooves on the cobblestone street in front of our house in Mexico, and loads of stray cats and dogs on the streets of Tirana that tugged at our heartstrings when we moved to Albania.
Our summer arrival here in the northern part of Greece was heralded with cooling rains alternating with brilliant sunshine. We’ve also seen loads of pollen and feathery-looking fluff flying through the air. Fortunately, so many of the flowers are wonderfully aromatic and attract a bevy of apiary life! I captured this brief video on a sunny afternoon in our new garden.
Comment below if this is exciting, and perhaps we can arrange for a more in-depth tour!

Thank you for posting your flora and fauna from Greece. Is the tree a fig?
The garden was full of fig, pomegranate, and apple trees!
I really love the clarity of your post. Are the trees bearing figs?
This post was from our time there last summer. YES, during our stay, we were practically buried in fresh figs, Ethel!
