Oh dear, I seem to not have blogged for a month!!!
My Excuses list:
1. The aviary keeper abducted and kept me hostage, till I painted enough gardens to make him happy
2. Bob, my imaginary dog, ate the keyboard
3. Iqaaf without telling me about it, decided to go on a world tour with the kite flying sisters and I had to chase him round the globe ...
4. I've been working long hours developing new work....
Can you tell I am not good at this excuses thing?
p.s. The photos are of the gardens I have been working on this week.

1> My real name is Stavri, but my friends call me Maya and my Etsy name is Lily...this can get a little confusing and can lead to long pauses when signing off emails (while wondering what my name is...)
2>I speak fluently greek and less fluently english and wish I could speak french...
3>I have an imaginary dog called Bob...He keeps me company till I adopt a real dog (who I plan to call Bob!)
4>I try and read as much as I can. Favourite authors include: Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, Alberto Manguel, Alessandro Barrico, Odysseas Elytis and one of my favourite poets Wistawa Szymborska.
5> I have a habit of starting conversations with anything - including animals, plants and other objects...i.e If say, I pass a tree or a cat I will say "hello" to them - thankfully my friends have got used to this and have stopped asking me who I am talking to!
I have tagged the following talented artists:

Iqaaf: Imaginary Question Asker Aged Five
Friday, 8 June 2007
They have had many happy times together gliding gracefully over every continent not to mention they can tell the difference between a Cumulonimbus from a Cirrocumulus cloud with their eyes shut-but their true talent shines when the winds blow fierce and the hail resembles hard boiled eggs :They have a gift of sticking together through the bad times and being able to detect the rainbows in any kind of bad weather...!
