Tulip tripping

Finally! I’ve managed to do one of the things I’ve wanted to do ever since I  got here. A trip to Castello di Pralormo to see the garden planted with 50 000 tulip bulbs. What a sight! And to make the trip even more enjoyable, I invited a friend to join me.

Swathes of tulips of various colours line the gravel paths around the castle gardens.

Whimsical woodland creatures to spy in the undergrowth.

Looking back at the castle from the garden.

The sun may not have been shining, but in my heart, it was a beautiful sunny day. The best way to spend a tranquil Sunday.
