In summer the beautiful Linden trees form tunnels on the roads into Bagni di Lucca. Linden trees are called Tiglio in Italy and as well as providing welcome shade in summer the perfume from the tiny yellow flowers fills the air with the delightful smell of summer.
Bees love the flowers and delicious Tiglio honey can be found in local shops.
Be careful not to park you car under one of the trees. A sticky sap falls from them and is quite difficult to remove…admire them from a distance.
Oh dear Debra how beautiful and I can imagine how smell so nice… Thanks and Love, nia
I love the smell of these trees – there are some on top of the Lucca walls as well. We’re looking forward to going back to Bagni di Lucca next week but I suspect that they won’t still be in blossom now
I love seeing Bagni di Lucca through your photos. Beautiful! 🙂
Aren’t they a lovely summer green colour. So fresh – but the sap is a nuisance to remove.
They are looking superb!
Thank you for the photos! I remember the sweet scent of the flower, and as a child I knew I was almost home. Thank you again for the memories…..waiting to return to my mountain hamlet…..
