sabato 16 maggio 2009


A nice day yesterday...I spent my afternoon jumping to some of my favourite shops and antique market...not properly an antique market...a sort of big store where people sell old things and whatever is thought to be useless!
Finally I found an old zink basin! I've been hunting to find zinc items for a lot of time, but they seems to be a rarity and even expensive here! After my conquest, I visited some garden shops...I find them very relaxing! I love to be outside when the sun shines! I bought white Geraniums and some other flowers and then...gardening!

...I don't remember the name of these blue flowers...the white ones are Solanum...

 they are my new treasures on the old stone bench in the garden!

Tomorrow a tour to the Lucca antique market and...beach! I love beach in this season...few people, sun and pleasant temperature!

Have a nice and sunny week end!

Hello Vale
Thank you for you lovely comments. I love the flowers arrangements in the zinc tub. It works very well! Your weather must be much better than it is here today. Rain! Heavy rain! How wonderful to be able to go to the beach. Not warm enough for that here. Last year we had a terrible summer in England. I really hope that it will be good this year as I look forward to going to the beach (90 minutes away)
I really like your first picture, could be on a postcard!
Enjoy your weekend

I haven't visited your blog for quite a while now. You show beautiful flowers and pictures!

As an answer to your comment on my blog, the baby is my son who was born 15 March this year. He is the reason why I haven't visited as many blogs as I used to.
Have a nice Sunday! Greetings from Sweden, Marie

You call them solanum - in Sweden they are named Pelargiónier and are very popular!

At last we are abel to plant in our gardens - it´s very cold up here in the north!

But very Beautiful with the changes of climate.

You should visit Church town!
