Last year a mini tornado ripped through some of the villages of Bagni di Lucca. Some lovely old trees were destroyed in the the park in La Villa.
New trees have been planted in time for spring growth. Several Magnolia Grandiflora are in place.
The existing trees are looking good.
The magnolias have almost finished flowering and the leaves are beginning to appear.
Luckily, the little tower and the fountain were not damaged.
The children’s playground is well used. The weather has been lovely and it is great to see children out and about.
The grass needs cutting, but I love to see the tiny daisies growing everywhere.
Well done! I don’t know who is responsible, but it is excellent to see that the park is being taken care of.
Well done, indeed! The Countess Casalini park was a great asset for the town. When I saw it after that terrible event which destroyed so many ancient and magnificent trees, I felt like crying. I also remember that in June the Palio Della Balestra took place there and it was so hot, due to the lack of trees,nth at I had to go back home to cool down. So I am delighted to see so many trees planted. They will take a while to grow, though…
Yes, they will grow slowly, but it is a good start. It is a lovely park and is well used.
And I shall see it soon, how lovely
I always manage to miss the magnolias !!
Lovely to see the park has been replanted. It always offered a cool place to sit on a warm day.
Yes, I remember reading about that on Francis’ blog. Things are looking gorgeous in Primavera.
Now if we can just get someone to mow the park at Villa Fiori…. 😉
When we saw it last July it certainly had taken a bashing from the hurricane. Still tidy though. It’s going to look great as the new trees fill out
How beautiful! Will go and see them when I return to Bagni di Lucca at the end of April x
I remember the post about the tornado … and it also appears spring has sprung!
Spring in the park is lovely…I’m sure everyone is enjoying it.
I love to stop for a minute, or ten, whenever I am in La Villa. It is terrific that they’ve planted some new trees.
