Saturday Snapshots – Narcissi in our Garden

 

I have not shared any flower photos from our garden since Our Garden in September and as I doubt I will write any more such posts this year I thought you might enjoy seeing the Narcissi that have come into bloom this month.

I am off to enjoy lunch followed by a walk in the sunshine having spent this morning preparing posts for News From Italy on the recent Olive Harvest and I have also published a post on Travel Tales - Hong Kong Park.  I am hoping that some of you will be interested in following Travel Tales and encouraging me that this new project is worthwhile, although I think it is going to make a fabulous online scrapbook of our travels, even if no one reads it.

Have a great weekend my friends where ever you live in this Beautiful World.

  2. Such a treat to have colour in the garden at this time of year! Thank you for the weekend wishes. If the weather cooperates I think a long walk will be order, down along the water, and a nice bout of sewing too, now that I have a room set up for my projects.

  10. I love the way you love the country where I was born! Thank you for sharing your enthusiasm, Lindy! Your narcissi are gorgeous! Maybe one day soon I'll be able to spend more time in Italy, looking after my poor plants and trees! Last Summer I kidnapped another cactus (prickly pear) At least I know it won't die of thirst!
    Buon fine settimana!

  20. Ciao Linda!
    I'm not surprised you have Narcissi in bloom in November, since I saw Calle in bloom whilst taking a walk yesterday..this crazy weather is so confusing, even for nature!

  26. What a totally different climates! Here in the Netherlands nothing is coming into bloom, everything is shutting down for the winter. I'd love to be in a warmer place.

    Beautiful picture!

  29. Hi, I just "followed" your blog. I love it - especially the olive trees and olives. We stayed outside Arezzo a few years ago in an olive grove, and I've been hooked on Italy ever since.
    Best, Madeline

  30. So lovely!! All of my flowers are finished for the year, and all the trees have lost their leaves with the rain and wind we had. Looking rather barren!!

    I can't wait to see your Olive Harvest photos!!!!! I'm waiting on YouTube and all my videos to finish loading, and then the Paris trip posts will start going up! Hugs!

  31. There is nothing blooming in my yard this time of year! The leaves have fallen to the ground and the trees are barren, so thank you for the floral share. Blessings!

  32. They remember me a poetry of Wordsworth (did I write well?), "I wandered lonely as a cloud". Thank for sharing!
