Last Day

We have been saving these photos taken on our last day in Piraeus, one last gift from our garden and a little goodbye message from Smudge



F had been watching a plant climb over an oleander - some sort of cucurbit with incredibly soft furry leaves and small yellow flowers. One day this bottle gourd just sort of appeared. Next day someone had cut it off and left it lying on the ground. It wasn't ripe enough to be useful.


Smudge was about 15 months old at this stage. He still has another winter and spring to go before he will be a big grown up man cat. He was still wary of every other cat except Leftie. He and the Lefthanded cat had formed a strange alliance, mates in dispossesion. They were at the mercy of all the stray cats but they hung out together, shared food, and kept watch over each other. That is a very strange cooperation for unrelated cats. F misses them. These photos suggest he was finally beginning to trust F a bit.
Maybe there was also a pumpkin after we departed.

  2. I often think of our gardens from previous houses. One that we drive past regularly has all gone to pot - poor Jane she gets so upset when she thinks of the effort we (she really) put in there

  3. I imagine there will be times when you will miss your Greek home as you settle into your new place. At least you will have photos to remind you of your life there :)

  5. Oh Tigger! Now the initial chaos has settled down a bit, F will be in a reflective mood now and then as she revisits memories of all the exciting things you did together in Greece. You must be extra thoughtful. Don’t kick the litter out on the floor and do give extra head butts. Smudge no doubt misses F too. Moki.
