Balcony


There are many beautiful balconies in the heart of Verona and ivy is one of the most popular plant to be seen on them. Some balconies are in full bloom, some are neglected...
There is a contest for the best balcony or windowsill. In september we will know the winner!

Tomorrow we'll be leaving for a few days... going back home to Monte Argentario, Tuscany. We will breath the salty water of the Tirrenian sea for a few days! I am arranging now the posts for the next few days, until monday. I hope you will have a BUONA PASQUA (Good Easter!) and I thank you for the comments you will leave. I'll be back soon!

Buona Pasqua, I've learned some Italian today and the same for you and your family.

These balconies are gorgeous. Tell me about the ivy. Planted in large pots? Around here it would never get to large and lush in pots. It's wonderful.

Verona is, for obvious reasons, the balcony world capital and this is a worhty and luxuriant example of that.
Buona Pasqua, and welcome back home...
