2012 has been a fun and interesting year. I have taken thousands of photos on my travels. Here are some of my favourites. If you click on the highlighted word you can see the full story.
This gorgeous green frog apeared on my balcony in January. It was a quick visit, he has not been back.
I saw these 2 interesting faces at the Carnevale in Viareggio in February.
In March I was on the wall in Lucca in time to see this magnificent sunset.
I also headed to the Garfagnana to watch Paolo make bread.
The magnolias in Lucca put on an excellent show.
This enormous bee landed on my pansies.
We spent a glorious week in Sardinia in April.
This cheerful fellow caught my attention at the Lucca wine festival.
We were impressed by the pushbikes in Amsterdam in May.
Giant magnolias attracted bees in Lucca in June.
Our lovely builders took a break at our Vergemoli house.
Brisbane looked great in the winter sunshine in July.
August found me back at the Ekka getting the prize chooks to pose for me.
The Brisbane river looks great at night.
I was back in Helsinki in September.
There was time for a quick stop in Rome on the way to Bagni di Lucca.
My geraniums were waiting for me when I arrived in the village. I plant them in April and they last until the end of November, or until it gets really cold.
The view from Ponte a Serraglio never disappoints.
Florence always looks amazing.
It was raining heavily when I left Bagni di Lucca in early November to come home to Australia.
The frangipanis on my terrace remind me why I love Brisbane.
I will be off again very soon to revisit my favourite places and find some new ones…and take a few more photos.
If you go across to Bella Bagni di Lucca you can see what has been happening in the village over Christmas.
