This and that around here and there

All around Florence, small things delight my eyes after a 2 month quarantine of home stay.  Here are just a few:

Today was a beautiful day in old Firenze! It is glorious to be able to enjoy the city again, especially with no tourists blocking all the old familiar places. No museums or gardens are yet open, but this city is an open air museum, which I am enjoying to the hilt.  Never again will I take walking the city for granted.
