Yes, I know this looks beautiful, the river has turned once again into a raging torrent and the trees are green, but enough of this rain!!! It has been pouring here for the last couple of days and it has become cold again. We need some sun to make the geraniums thrive.
This little fellow doesn’t appear to be too bothered by the wet. He was out this morning for a walk.
At least someone is happy about the rain.

I feel exactly the same! Come back sunshine!
I can’t believe the weather this year. The rain must stop soon, but I have been saying that for months.
It’s my first winter and spring in Italy, I have to say I’m a little disappointed that its wetter (if not colder) than the UK so far!
This is my tenth and the worst by far. It is not usually as awful as this.

A wonderful post (if somewhat fed up) from Debra!! Ha, its the same here in NZ…..Rain, Rain, Rain….after wishing for it all summer, it is here now…
What a fantastic lizard!
Isn’t he gorgeous? I’m not sure that his camouflage was working for him this morning.
Would his camouflage ever work? It’s such a bright yellow
It is difficult to imagine where it would work, but he must be those colours for a reason.
That lovely little fellow is called a salamandra pezzata in Italian: very nice pics of it too!
He was a very handsome little chap.
We will be there in a month, so hope the rain has gone away by then! We are in Melbourne and apart from the past few days very dry here lately. Although it has become quite cool in the past few days also….winter is almost here!
I’m sure the weather will be lovely in a month…probably quite hot.
I love the salamander…I’ve only seen a few around our home and it is usually when the weather has been wet. Wishing you sunshine soon.
It will fine up soon…I know it will!
Me too! Seems I’m living in The Netherlands after all 😉 I’m so longing for summer!!!
It must get better soon. I have never known a worse spring here.
2008 wasn’t that good either. But I agree…it must get better soon. I’ll keep my fingers crossed 😉
I hear all of your pain…I’m in Pennsylvania, USA and feeling the same about our weather! This time last year I was packing to fly to Pisa …and drive to Bagni di Lucca for 2 weeks…it was warm and beautiful the whole time…glad it’s not this year!! Love reading the posts!
This is definitely the worst spring I have had here in 10 years. I wouldn’t mind so much if we weren’t trying to build a garden.
It was the same last year – but when it got hot it was scorching –
Last year was not nearly as bad as this year. This rain has been going on for months.
Chiming in from Wisconsin, US, and we’ve been searching for Spring since March. 🙂 Had snow showers last weekend.
LOVE the pictures! But I agree, the river would be prettier with the sun shining. At least the little salamander added some color. He’s very cute.
He was a very bright little thing. I hope he had a lovely day in the rain.
Yes, so much rain is becoming a nuisance, although it does wonders for the landscape. The river is roaring past the mill and I cannot see the trouts. Plenty of lizards, though, having a great time.
It will do wonders for our landscape…if we can get things planted.
I hope it stops soon! xx
