  1. What a grand place, Merisi.
    I love that mixture of flowers. It looks like a garland!
    Absolutely gorgeous!

    I love the cherubs...

  4. now...
    when did you take a snap
    of my front yard?


    OK, i lied...

    but it is all so spring-like THERE
    and we are in summer heat HERE
    with flowers running away shouting,
    "we have had enough!"

    once agian,
    i thank you for sharing...


  5. Merisi, this is absolutely stunning!!!!!
    Loved it

  6. gsh, isn't it formal? Where are all the little cottage gardens?

  7. wonderful pics! I would like nothing better than to be sitting there sketching those sculptures. They really seem to stand out against the blue sky. And that tree is quite a character, too.

  8. Only a short hello and thank you to all of you for visiting and leaving all those kind comments. I am very short on time for play, but wanted to add a link to photos of the Belvedere that I took on earlier occasions: click here, please.
    Best wishes to all of you,

  9. Very colourful! Just a little cumulus in the sky.
