"Isn't that tree beautiful?" The acacia in our garden bloomed so quickly that we hardly noticed it in the dull weather that we'd been having. After the rain and gloom of the last few days, our town has been dry-cleaned - whatever was wet is now clean and dry from the hot sun, which is the most common weather phenomenon in Hania: there's a 75% chance that it will be a sunny day in autumn, winter or spring (in summer that number rises to 95%). The acacia's blossoms last only a short time; let's enjoy them while we have them.
