Snow in Ponte a Serraglio

We woke up to snow this morning. Here is my balcony.

My poor daffodils are covered. I hope they are tough.

The magnolia flowers are covered with snow.

Mimosa is weighed down with snow.

Of course I had to go for a walk in the snow. I wasn’t the only one.

I hitched a ride to the top near Bagni Caldi and walked down. The roads are all white with snow.

The last time I was here for deep snow was February 2013.

It is 15 years ago today that we first came to Bagni di Lucca and decided to buy here…an excellent decision.

  20. I hope not to bother you but you answered one question and now I have another. We will be staying in Bagno di Lucca for three months. Do you have any suggestions for leasing a car. We are looking at car rentals for that time and it will cost us over $3300US. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.
