Day 16 & PPAC: Florence

Today celebrates the daughter of two good friends. Eight years ago we were in Florence all together. I haven’t been back since. She was seven years old then and our bestia loved her immediately, and vice versa. In today’s blogging memories at the end of this post you can see what a beautiful sculpture ofContinue reading “Day 16 & PPAC: Florence”

Cin cin, Flavia!

Getaways with Flavia are the thing I miss the most, if anybody asks. Let’s hope for many more. Just when you get the first friend in Italy (and what a friend!), first the pandemic hits and then she moves to Iraq. By the way, her hotel has just opened, if you wish to visit Basra.Continue reading “Cin cin, Flavia!”

CFFC: Birdies

As long as we can still count on the birds and the seasons, it’s going to be alright. Here is a collection of my feathery companions here in southern Tuscany with a nature reserve as a neighbour. Only the last four photos are from elsewhere: two from Rome and two from Slovenia. All except theContinue reading “CFFC: Birdies”

CFFC: Barf and leak

Ooops, I meant bark and leaf. Because Cee asks for it. That I’ve got plenty, but today more bark than leaves. As usually, my gallery is a blend of Tuscany to start with and Slovenia to finish. I’m not sure about all the tree species, but there are eucalyptus, pine, larch (I believe), sycamore (orContinue reading “CFFC: Barf and leak”

Last good Friendly Friday

Oooops, I didn’t mean to say that in the title. There will be others! But Sandy wishes to know about the last good things we ate, saw and laughed at in recognition. When I saw Sandy’s Friendly Friday task, I REALLY planned to post only one photo per question, alas… You can guess the rest.Continue reading “Last good Friendly Friday”

Pic and a Word #302: Progress

Today’s poem and three galleries are a direct result of a photo father posted on Facebook a few days ago. Everything changes, sometimes nightmarishly so. But first, to start on a high note, the highlight of last night’s NBA All Stars game and it took place during a break. You give all your 22 yearsContinue reading “Pic and a Word #302: Progress”

PPAC: Prekmurje 5. – Lendava Cultural Centre

Do you feel it? A good day. Spring and victories in the air. And one happening building with wings. We are still in Prekmurje, in the head of the chicken which is Slovenia on the map. If you don’t believe me, have a look at my last Thursday Doors post with several doors from thisContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 5. – Lendava Cultural Centre”

Pic and a Word #298: Divine

When the pandemic first hit and the world was running out of toilet paper, the only thing that ran out in our small supermarket here in Tuscany was the wine. Divine Is this a test? How could divine get its name from anything else but di vino, from wine? In response to Patrick Jennings’ Pic andContinue reading “Pic and a Word #298: Divine”
