tuscan colours 1

We had little rain while we were in Tuscany, but there had been some very heavy weather in the weeks before our visit. Consequently everything was fresh and green and ablaze with colour ..

the roses were beautiful

and the poppies.

This bird of paradise flower was growing in the garden of our bed and breakfast.

Beautiful pics! I never associate a tropical flower like the bird of paradise with Tuscany, so it's interesting to see that here. Someday I gotta get to that part of Italy.
