One of the fun things about writing a blog is the people you meet along the way. Today I went to Lucca to meet Stephanie and Paul who follow the blog and have come to spend a month in this lovely Tuscan town.
It was a gorgeous day in Lucca, the sun shone and it was delightfully warm, so we had a stroll through the streets before having lunch at Paris Boheme.
Spring is less than a week away, but it seems to have come a bit early this year. The magnolia blooms have almost finished in Corso Garibaldi when they should be about to start.
The trees on the walls are still bare, but there are tiny buds beginning to appear.
Some of the trees in the botanical gardens are already well on the way to turning green.
I don’t know what this one is, but it has the most amazing root system.
Wild flowers are growing in the sunshine.
Camellia trees are laden with gorgeous flowers.
The next few weeks are going to be wonderful, spring is an exciting time of the year with new growth appearing every day. I hope the weather stays dry and warm. We have had a very wet winter and everyone is quite tired of it.
