May at Monachus Monachus Apartments

Our preparation period, at least for the last six years, is usually in May. This is when we do all the pruning in the garden, we clean the pool and in general we run all day long to make it happen. So we thought it will be nice to share some of our most interesting moments. Enjoy!!!

Finished cleaning the pool and the deck around it. What a happy day as it means we can now start to fill it with water...

A couple of days later, admiring the weather early in the morning and thinking hmm...cloudy...

And then, while the pool was finally full, Sahara dust paid us a visit. Though, it did not rain for too long, you can see in the photo below how it is when the atmosphere is dust-laden, now imagine the aftermath in the tiles!

Next it was time for garden pruning. Well, sometimes that can be rewarding, yeah right, especially when you come upon a beautiful small nest hanging, literally, from an oleander's branches.

It is hard to tell at that young age the type of the bird but I am guessing it is blackbird (Turdus Merula) due to the size and the position of the nest.

Unfortunately, the rain and the strong wind that followed these days did not help them survive. 

Thus, time passed and we reached our opening day, 1st of June. We prepared some chocolate treats for our first customers, yogurt-based to keep it on the healthy side!

And Greek yogurt with homemade apple marmalade, as breakfast supplement, some sugar there though!
