Snow - at last - and terracotta



We missed out on the snow so far this winter although the temperatures have been quite low, minus 6 C. So it was a nice surprise to wake this morning to a dusting of snow which transforms the garden. The terracotta pots now really come into their own and add a touch of warm colour to the monchrome scene. The nymph looks rather chily and is pulling her terracotta robe a little tighter against the cold. The large pots show their textures and ridges to great advantage with snow revealing the contours.

So you have some snow in Perugia also? I have only been in P once. I lived in Ravenna for 8 years, but I did not have a garden. Only here in Norway. But now it is all covered in over 1m snow...
