For the two Nadias

Twenty-eight degrees at 1pm. Sunny, but in Carmine, a breeze. The increasing warmth is taking its toll on the daily lunchtime kindergarten run. Anybody know a smart way to raise a tired three-and-a-half-year-old through 100m in eighty degrees Fahrenheit without giving him a piggy back?

The rest of this post is especially for the two Nadias, who have houses side by side, on Carmine's tangenziale ouest, and whom we see far too infrequently.

Carrissime, I can see your gardens from all the windows on one side of my house, and every day they give me the greatest of visual pleasure. The azaleas and the aubrettias together make Carmine vibrate with colour. I thought you might like to see them too.



Come and see us soon.

You know, someday I'll have to come to your Carmine Louise. Those azaleas are just divine. Happy mother's Day in advance by the way. And I've forgotten to thank you for adding me to your links. I love it Louise "A View from Across the Pond..."

We call the pond "charco" in Spanish. It means the same thing.
