Life Celebration #14 – Glorious Nature!

When the warm fön wind breathes its warm breath over Piemonte, we stretch our winter weary limbs, drinking in the blue skies and green pastures. All too soon, the skies will be grey and glowering, heavy with rain and snow. Today, though, today is clear and warm and bright. What a privilege to have beautiful places to visit nearby!

The Roman bridge in Fondo. This village at the end of a narrowing valley doesn’t get sunshine in winter. “Fondo” means bottom or end.

How many feet have trodden this path since the bridge was built? I wonder!

Even the huts protecting the rubbish carts have mossy slate rooves. Delightful!

On a sunny winter day, icicles hanging from rocks at the edge of the road glitter and shine, fascinating me.
