Last Sunday

This was last Sunday: Monte Argentario monastery laid out the view and the flowers for us.

Well, for everybody who chose to drive those few kilometres half way to the top of Monte Argentario, the hill on the peninsula of the same name next to the Orbetello lagoon, right here on the Silver Coast (our part of Italy is not only part of the historical land of Maremma, it is also called “Costa Argente”, I learned recently).

Before we have the look and the flowers, here is the recap of the last two weeks on my blog. With the visitor over I was not all that active. There were:

And now let’s drive to the Convento dei Frati passionisti from where it’s the best view of the Orbetello lagoon. Normally there is hardly anybody up there but we forgot that it was the Sunday of the “Infiorata del Corpus Domini”, the flower petal art festival which we intended to visit in Pitigliano with their miles of rich and varied displays, but the plans were altered. Still, we weren’t left completely without.

    In spite of the growing crowds, it looks beautiful with all the different coloured flowers.

    1. Thank you, Joanne. I was having some fun in my description. There was neither a real crowd nor were they in any way a problem. 🙂
