Ponte pansies

The pansies on the bridge haven’t been the best this year. They are nowhere as good as those from last year. I have no idea why, perhaps the weather didn’t suit them.

In about a week I will take them out and replace them with geraniums for the summer. Let’s hope they do better.

Take a last look at the 2016 pansies.

Anyone who would like to help water them over the summer please let me know.

 

 

Cool clear water

The rivers and streams are full of fast flowing water at this time of year. It is heartening to see that it is clean and clear.

The colour of the water changes, depending on melting snow and the amount of rain. There are some amazing colours in the river on the way into the Garfagnana.

I pass this river every time I go to our mountain house. It is always beautiful.

It is raining today, more water to fill the rivers.
