Happy Easter ! Καλό Πάσχα! Bonne fête de Pâques !

This year, Easter falls the same day for all Christians. In Greece (and countries of Orthodox traditions), it is the most important date of the year, with many traditions, celebrations. Ikaria is a quiet and rocky island, quite isolated from the continent. But for Easter, members of Ikarian families came from Athens and others cities and even from abroad to celebrate with their belonged. Taverns are full and local wine flows. Tomorrow, people will be allowed to eat again meat (many continues to eat it, in fact) after 40 days.
Easter is the symbol of renewal of nature: flowers, butterflies, birds… This is how are looking some parts of this rocky island, with poppies, lupins, chrysanthemes… Cheers to all!

Happy Easter, Catherine!

Lovely landscape with beautiful flowers. Great colors!

I believe the yellow flowers are not a Chrysanthemum species, but possibly a Crepis.

Enjoy your time in Ikaria!
