More brush - Less keyboard
Another week passes with no keyboard activity. Painting is taking over. While Bodrum Municipality was handing out free flowers and pot-plants to celebrate Women's Day yesterday (which I only found out about after the event though did notice several scooters passing looking as if they were entering the Best in the Village Garden contest), and hundreds of children were competing in BIOR, Bodrum International Optimist Regatta (it's a sailing competition, not a race to find Bodrum's most sanguine child) I was in Şüle's Workshop - paintbrush in hand.
Who could have guessed that a 4 Lira plastic pot could be transformed with a lick of Beton Effect paste. It is now outside testing its claim to be weatherproof.
And my uninspiring chunky wooden stool looks much more attractive after its makeover. Teo would have made a face over the flamingo and without his good taste to hold me back, I am flighting the urge to cover every free surface with pink waders. The garden wall needs painting and I quite fancy a flock of flamingos to keep the geraniums company.
