Still in the Red Zone and locked down tightly. Back in the garden, I spied this magnificent wisteria, scrambling up a modest home.
In my neighborhood I am delighted to have the Horticultural Garden with this fantastic 19th century glass house. We may be in complete lock down, but about once a day I can feast my eyes on this beautiful sight.
There are 2 large carved vases near the glass house, with relief sculptures all around each. Until today, I never noticed the interesting scenes. What do you think they depict? I am at a loss. High drama, for sure!
Dateline: Florence, Italy
Status: Zona Rossa, in English this is the Red Zone (meaning, stay in your homes people, unless you need to go out for groceries or to see the doctor)
Mood: bored, bracing for insanity
Ha ha. I wish this were an April Fool’s post, but alas, Italy is in the red zone and we are confined to our homes. The only legal chance to leave home, aside from shopping for food or medicine, is a short walk in your immediate neighborhood. Fortunately for me, the Horticultural Garden is nearby, and the season is spring, so I can get some relief. My next few posts will be centered on this tiny little aperture on life.
Gilli is my favorite pasticceria in Florence and their confections for Easter are wonderful! Just look!
We are in Zona Rossa, Red Zone, which means we must stay at home.
What to do after I’ve finished my work? Virtual travel. Maybe you’d like it too?
