Seasons

One of the things I like most about living in Bagni di Lucca is the change of seasons. I love the starkness of winter with the occasional promise of snow.

Spring is everybody’s favourite when everything turns green and beautiful.

spring comes to the mountains

The villages come to life when the sun shines.

The roads into Bagni di Lucca turn into green tunnels

In spring and summer flowers bloom everywhere.

In spring acacia blossoms turn the hills white and fill the air with the most delicious honey fragrance.

Pansies are happy little flowers and lift their faces to the sun at the first opportunity.

Peonies are my favourite flowers and they seem to grow wild in our area.

Autumn in Bagni di Lucca is a particularly beautiful season. The trees turn yellow and gold and the mornings and evenings turn deliciously cool.

pretty geraniums are everywhere
