I have spent a lot of time in Bagni di Lucca this year. It is wonderful to watch the changes in the seasons throughout the year.
I arrived in January to blue skies and the water high in the Lima river.
Not long after Bagni di Lucca was covered with snow for a while. Even the lower villages were white for days.
A very wet spring didn’t stop everything turning green.
Heavy rain meant the river was often very high.
We did have some sunny days in spring.
Sunny enough for a walk beside the river.
There was late snow in May.
Summer brings flowers, bees, insects and delicious fruit.
I was back in autumn for more changes.
There was more heavy rain in October.
…and pretty autumn colours and mists.
December brought some cold mornings.
…another great year in 2013. What will 2014 bring?
