Random moments of Florentine beauty

Some of these are of course from the archives.  Nobody would believe that Florence’s Piazza Santa Annunziata would be filled with people in April of 2020.  If it were, the police would soon be there!

But, from 20 years ago or so, I found this wonderful picture of the piazza during a plant exhibition of some kind.  Sigh. :-))

Sometimes, you just need a fresh look at an old friend.  How about the one below: the pavement of Florence’s Duomo.  Wow.

A recent drone overview of the beautiful Duomo. In shots like this, you realize just how small Florence is.  See the Piazza della Repubblica to the left.

And a recent shot from the arbored passerella near my apartment.  I love wisteria so much!

The Bardini Garden in Florence’s Oltrarno

It’s winter, but I’m thinking about one of my favorite gardens in my favorite season: the Bardini in spring. Fortunately, I have my pictures of the garden from last spring.

First the facts, then, the flowers.  Keep scrolling down for the pretty pictures.
