My Ponte Balcony

Yesterday I planted daffodils and pansies on our Ponte a Serraglio balcony. In autumn last year I had to take the old daffodils away as they were taking over the pots. They now live at Casa Debbio and are just about to flower.

My new plantings look a bit meagre, but the pansies will grow and be gorgeous in no time.

They certainly brighten up an overcast winter day.

  13. Pansies are not only pretty but they seem quite sturdy. I recall seeing them under snow in Venice, and then chipper as could be in a day or two.
