There has been some wild weather in Bagni di Lucca. There was snow for a few hours before rain came to wash it all away.
The river that was extraordinarily low this summer is now roaring past.
I wish I was around to see the snow and rain. I love to stand at my window to watch it all happen.
Thank you Paul for taking photos of my front yard.
I would love to have been at the Presepe Vivente in Granaiola on the weekend. This event is one of the most delightful things to happen in Bagni di Lucca. The whole community gets involved, turning an ancient village into living theatre.
Local photographer David Bonaventuri took these amazing photos. Please look at his Facebook page for more and while you are there see the amazing photos he takes of our beautiful area.
My friend Paola managed to get her photo taken with baby Jesus, played wonderfully by Rafael Kniver.
She took photos too.
I know the event was enjoyed by all who participated. I will have to stay on through December one year to see it for myself.
I wish I was around to see La Villa lit up for Christmas. Fortunately Valerio Ceccarelli was on hand to take some photos of the first night of the lights.
I hope it is a wonderful festive season for everyone.
There has been a series of wonderful events for children and their families lately at the theatre in La Villa.
Lots of people attended and had a great time. Well done Wanda!
It is great to see new activities in Bagni di Lucca. It is possible that there will be another series in the new year.
This is the last show of autumn colour in the park in La Villa. Heavy rain has washed away the autumn leaves and soon the trees will take on their winter look.
Each season is beautiful in its own way.
The first snow of the season has fallen at Abetone.
Let’s hope it will be a great ski season.
I can’t get enough of the fabulous Tiglio tunnels on the way into Fornoli and Ponte a Serraglio. They look amazing in each season, but autumn is special.
It is raining now and soon all the leaves will be gone.
