VerdeMura

Some photos from VerdeMura...it was a strange weather...sunny in a grey sky...

















...springy flowers in colourful crates...

















...ancient roses...the lady of this stall is a very nice British lady in love of her faboulous roses...I bought climbing ones for the little arch I have put in my garden...

















...any kind of bulbs...

















...little plants for flower beds and borders...

















...citrus and olive trees...a Mediterranean touch...

















...cabbages...

















...beautiful and decorative vegetables...













...old stuff...watering cans... flasks...so pretty and the big cage to transport hens to the market...













...zinc tubs, vases, benchs...

















...the guest star of the fair...a very big cock...

















...food and wine...

I've worked in the garden the rest of the time...planting new plants and eradicating the roots of a big tree...my back is destroyed now!
Time for a coffee with a special friend from Norway...she was the sister in law of my ex...she is a very lovely person and she is in love with Tuscany...a nice opportunity to see her again!!!
A little trip in the countryside and a nice harvest...how generous is nature in Spring time! I took some hours to make floral arrangements and spread them around my home!

I want to thank you to join my giveaway ...you have time till April 13! I'll try to visit you all as soon as possible!
A nice new week to you!

Hi Vale!
Those climbing roses will look beautiful in your garden! Now, exactly which tree's roots were you attacking? ....just asking! :)
I love all those old zinc items and antiques of course and those cheeses look amazing! Ah, I dream of Tuscany....some day again I hope!
Enjoy your visit!

Ohhh my gosh!!!!!
Absolutely fell in love with the zink tubs, and the ancient roses.
It feels a bit strange to see these photos because we still have snow here. But I feel energy when I see them, and I´m really looking forward to spring now.
I have been working the whole weekend but I will send you the email about the labels....
Take care and have a really nice week!
Hugs Mia

Hi Vale, Thank you for sharing those beautiful pictures! I especially love the buttercups and the cute lemon tree. The veggies just look so much nicer when they are presented in such wonderful wicker baskets instead of those ugly plastic containers in the supermarkets.
Have a lovely day!
Hugs,
Julia
