Every year, on a day in April, Borgo a Mozzano’s streets are filled with azaleas…a great time to visit this quaint nearby town. It wasn’t the best day with overcast skies and threatening rain, but I went anyway.
There were displays in the streets.
…lots of flowers for sale. Some of the rhododendrons will be living under the hazelnut trees at Casa Debbio.
Of course there was food for sale.
…and other things to buy.
The pool and surrounds in Borgo are looking great.
The pruned trees on the main street are springing to life.
On the way home I stopped on the Borgo side of the river for a different view of the Ponte della Maddelena. Even on an overcast day the bridge looks great.
Must try to go today – yesterday there was no-one and it was raining too!
Lovely displays. I especially love the ancient street trees bursting into bloom 🙂
Beautiful! Borgo a Mozzano has some great initiatives, such as this one or the Halloween night at the Ponte and the old town.
Beautiful flowers, I really like azaleas and rhododendrons. The flowering tree is unusual – was it something growing in the moss on the tree or were they the tree’s own flowers. I love the stuffed ducks.
Even though it was an overcast day, the flowers were beautiful. I can just imagine how lovely it would have been if the sun had been shining.
Lovely to see the blooms…..and I’m sure the ones in their new home at Casa Debbio will add a lovely display under the hazelnuts.
Casa Debbio is going to look wonderful in a couple of years when everything grows.
I can’t wait for the next photo’s of your garden
Looking all very summer-ready. Your garden at Casa Debbio will be even more gorgeous now… so much inspiration!
Borgo is where my granparents have there birth certificates. It’s a very cute hamlet. i can’t wait to retire!
Borgo is an interesting town and looks great for the festival.
my mother had a oil painting professionaly done of that bridge. it now is hanging at my sisters house. she was very proud of Bagni di Lucca where her parents were both born. it’s fun to visit my heritage thru your eyes Debra.
I do hope that these lovely flowers will still be in blossom in 3 weeks time. Was there a market there also
Maybe the azaleas will be finished but other flowers will be around. The whole town was a market of flowers and food.
Another place I have to visit!
