What's flowering in my garden in Positano.

A single peach blossom.
Uva Fragola -strawberry flavoured grape vine.

There is nothing like the rebirth of Nature for inspiration. What's flowering in my garden at Positano will have to do till I get my head around my capricious computer problems.


Notice the bare earth -Many thanks to our gardener.

Sage - Rampant and huge if not pruned heavily each winter. It easily smothers any herbs sitting beside it.






La Zagara- or orange blossom




Our Wisteria just promising blooms in the wake of the season.

To allay any confusion, these were photos that I took at this time last year when Easter came much sooner, and we had over a week of torrential rain.

I was wondering if perhaps you were back! Happy Easter. It'll be here before you know it!

Beautiful! Spring is coming sooner in Positano than here near Amalfi. I love wisteria! Is it easy to grow here? I was just thinking of putting some in the garden. Easter is coming soon!

We are a little behind you, but I've seen some very promising buds on the almond and cherry. Your orange blossom... My word, that's absolutely stunning!

I bet you can't wait to get back. How about your garden up there? What's happening, or have the moles completely taken over?

I love orange blossom. There used to be so much of it in Taormina and the fragrance just carries with the wind and is beautiful.

Claudia said...

Sigh. I am looking at my "garden" (still in slush) and thinking, "Maybe it's time to cut last years blooms." And you have them!

Very like yours, Spring came much earlier here in my world, too. Exactly from the mid of January we are facing xtra-beautiful winter no!, but an early Spring.
All so gorgeous shots, love love loved them.

I feel I must know you but we're both blogging incognito, identities hidden behind a nickname. I'm not a Poitanese, but I very well could be, given the time I spend there during the year. I came across your blog via Ciao Amalfi and Massimo Capodanno. I'm a regular at the Rispoli's alla Buca, raised on their glorious food and warm affection. My childhood spells Positano. And my son learned how to swim and love seafood in those magical waters. History repeating itself.
See you a Pasqua, then!
