Posts Tagged ‘A fallen bloom’

Welcome and Benvenuti to all my Lovely Followers around the World,

86190121_10158256389728083_4300638138889404416_oWednesday 12 February.  I would never have guessed that a beautiful fallen bloom, from an early flowering shrub, could have given me such a lift.  It wasn’t just the beauty of the thing but how I received it that made all the difference.  I have had three weeks of feeling pretty run-down after a minor operation, due to my pathetic immune system.  I went to Fiano this morning for my usual espresso, newpapers and chat; then Roberto our local sculpture walked in and presented me with the bloom!  Bless his lovely kind heart, the site of it in the palm of my hand sent a wave of sheer joy through my still fragile system!  I knew there and then that my head was sufficiantly clear to start writing again!  Thank you dear Roberto.  (someone, please let me know what the flower is; thank you x)

So off I went, with the bloom on my dashboard, down to Certaldo and an overdue visit to Sandra to have my hair coloured.  Although tired, I felt even more invigorated  as I was now looking more like my old self.  Also, Sandra has a batch of the usual glossies and I indulged in some trivia reading and fashion drooling.  A bit of pampering and time wasting, can do one the world of good.  I left Sandra’s and walked into bright warm sunshine and the temperature guage registered 17 degrees on the dashboard!  Great!  Back home in our lovely monastery farmhouse, I see that the forecast for Friday and Saturday is for sun and a high of 19 degrees,  then good weather right up to the end of February; hurrah!  So things go from good to even better!  What a great day.

The Florentine on-line magazine has come to the rescue with some lovely locations for Helvetia-e1581345841702-680x728celebrating with your amore.  But what’s this?  Somewhere called the Bristol Winter Gardens (yes Bristol) in Florence!  Sounds like a great place to eat, you only have to look at the dish in the foto.  Mmmmm.  The Florentine

Well, going to finish here as I am still not one hundred percent, but by next week you can rest assured that I will be rocking.  Have a great weekend.  Oh and Happy Valentines Day!

Salute June x
