Re: Cherry trees

In my opinion it is more likely too hot at Polemi for the "petrokeraza" black cherry. They grow well at higher altitudes like Panayia, Arsos, PeraPedi...
I tried them in the 80's at NeoChorio with no luck. However, I remember seeing trees at Lysos area which is only 100 m higher than Polemi.

Hungry lizards...

I have posted several topics in the past about lizards and agamas which I fed in summer with fruits, eggs, sausages etc. However I never tried it with roasted chicken breast which I had yesterday for lunch. Sitting outside, lizards were not any shy to come close and interested what I am eating. So I...

Re: Sinti Monastery Revisited

It was in one of the rooms. I shall have to look at my drone footage to find the exact one. I went back to my photo gallery 4 years ago and found within more than 100 pics that the millstone was in the high building of the complex, so sorry I forgot about it, obviously mixed up with photos from Sal...

Re: Paphos beaches

There is also Sandy Beach in Lemba, Venus Beach, Vrysoudia and Vrysoudia II, plus Lara Bay. Certainly, the beaches in the East are nicer, but the beaches in Paphos are by no means crap. Not to forget Asprokremmos Beach at Latchi, Anassa Hotel, at the end of this short video from Manos one can see c...

Relaxing in a sea of blossoms, 28.2.21

Another very sunny day after a full week of sunshine at a Paphos countryside. I decided to have another lie-down, surrounded only by flowers and bees before the weather is going to change a bit the next few days.... Drinks are on the other side.... :) https://up.picr.de/40652362uc.jpg more close htt...

Re: Sinti Monastery Revisited

In 2017 when I did my last trip to Sinti Monastery, coming from high up near Salamiou it was only a dirt road the last 2 km's or so, but there was a proper bridge you can see on the photo from that time. This bridge disappeared completely after the heavy rains in 2018/19... https://up.picr.de/406464...

Re: Government's latest announcement re restrictions

Makes you wonder if the teachers at these schools have had the positive antigen tests, which they should have done. Seems to be a real problem now in Limassol, yet the Govt seems disinclined to bring in stronger lockdown measures in that town. Dee As of today, Saturday, all teachers and pupils in L...

Re: Superhome Centers to open three new stores in Cyprus - one in Polis!

I had preferred if they (Shacolas) continued with their Golf project at Limni to boost tourism in this area, after Corona times... and IF Lidl opens another store at Polis, then there will be too much competition for DIY there. :roll:

http://weather.bnellis.eu/forecast/ I don't foresee much snow under about 1500 m. More important are the winds expected Tuesday and Wednesday with significant windchill possible, even probable.

Re: Lidl - muddle

Lidl tomatoes have been a bit tasteless of late. But they have started selling vintage cheddar again so all else can be forgiven. When they are tasteless then they are imported from the Netherlands. By accident I bought some one month ago and after that long time they are still looking OK but no ta...
