A beauty surplus

A surplus of beauty: is that even possible? Doubtful.

These camellias arrested me in the center of Florence. They were on shrubs, growing in containers. Wow! Spectacular.

And, below, what is possibly the most impressive door knock in all of Florence. It’s complicated, it’s fantastical, and it’s huge. I added a 2nd photo with my hand, for scale. This poor man has been holding the movable part of the knock for centuries with his tongue!

Ah, Florence, you never disappoint!
