A couple of weeks ago, Other Half™ and I took a short break in Piemonte in northern Italy. We left behind us a city desperately clinging on to the vestiges of winter - the snow gone, leaving piles of frozen grey debris skulking in corners, hiding from the weak sunshine.
In the Alps there were several feet of snow, azure skies and brilliant sunshine.
I think these skiers had gone for a hot chocolate!
This sheep looked rather surprised - whether at us, or the cat, I'm not sure.
This little church had beautiful frescoes painted on the outside.
