My mum says that what she loves the buds and new leaves of Spring is that they hold the promise of Summer. I think I just like the promise of Spring most of all. This is the main pergola at Bardini. The wisteria are just beginning to bud, the hyacinths below are hinting at becoming green. I can't wait to see it in full bloom. We spent lots of time looking at pebbles, and water, at flowers, for nuts. One of Ila's favorite books right now is Each Peach Pear Plum by the Ahlbergs. At Bardini there is a small orchard of dwarf fruit trees, currently budding. Among them, peach, pear, plum, as well as cherry and apply. Another few weeks and it should be the sweetest smelling place ever.

For future trip tips, if when you get to Boboli Gardens the line outside going in is huge, go to the ticket office (the line is shortish), get your ticket and go to another entrance. Much quicker and less frustrating. This is the view from the Kaffehaus in the Bardini Garden. View from Bardini

This, because we miss our dogs so much that even petting a stone puppy brings us joy.
Even a stone doggy needs a little love
