I am back from cold, wet New York to wet Bagni di Lucca.
I love the look of misty, rainy days here in Bagni di Lucca.
I love to see the raindrops on the bare branches, and the new buds waiting to be magnolias.
…and the shiny, wet leaves of the camellias.
But I am sick of the rain, a bit like this cat who is trying to decide whether his desire to be outside is worth the bother of wet feet.
There are signs on my balcony that spring is not far away. There are mini irises.
There is even a bee making its way up the stem of the new daffodils.
I want a sunny day so I can plant lovely pansies on my balcony and the bridge below…maybe tomorrow.
I have lots more to share from wonderful New York, so look out for posts from my visit over the next few weeks.
