Spring has definitely sprung here in Italy. There are blooms and blossoms in every shade of just about every colour as far as the eye can see. Bright yellow forsythia bushes, magnolia trees with massive paper white blossoms, lemon yellow daffodil flowers, dusty pink cherry blossoms, fuchsia camellia bushes and soft violet crocus flowers that the cover lawns and fields of grass. It’s totally worth the itchy watery eyes and constant sneezing that started last week and will most likely continue for the next few months. Being a lover of colour makes Spring my favourite season of the year. Thank goodness for antihistamines.
This week I’m grateful for…
…these delicate pink Camellia flowers in my friend and neighbour’s yard. I look forward to seeing them every spring.
…getting to celebrate the Danish Fastelavn (Carnival) with friends. Although I don’t want to think about those poor live cats that they used to put in the barrel years ago.
…online art courses that my daughters can enjoy in between the hours and hours of homework and studying that they have to do every single day of their little lives.
Wishing you all a great week ahead!
