Facing the sunset, emotion and amazement  

The first Iris

This year too, the first iris. It ‘a small rainbow. In advance on the expectations and wishes. And other buds are ready to bloom. Wikipedia: Il nome del genere deriva dalla parola greca Iris che significa arcobaleno.  

Daisies, sweet daisies (2)

Even the daisies are in advance? I can’t remember a day without daisies, here at La casa di Ulisse B & B, Quercianella, Tuscany  

Eatable winter flowers

Cauliflower and broccoli from our garden. Cauliflower, a cabbage of a variety that bears a large immature flower head of small creamy-white flower buds”

Cyclamens, winter colors

For many,  many years our cyclamens inhabit these pots. They resist, they multiply, they also give color on gray days of winter  

The Cormorant
