I find myself going back to my pictures of Italy to immerse myself in the memories of warmth and sunshine, that so permeated our trip there.  As more snow falls outside, I can always return to these, to help me through what is becoming a rather long and seemingly endless  winter.  Dreaming of the smell of dirt and a warm breeze on my skin.  Of course, a couple of more screaming sled rides down the driveway, is not a bad thing to look forward to, before winter lets go of us.

    Italy is a wonderful place. Taking the train there is always a rather fun adventure too I might add. Thanks for a trip back to Firenze. Did you get to the Uffizi?
    I would love to go back there, sunshine or not!

    Your photos, as usual, are stunning. I, Sicilian that I am, have never been to Italy or Sicily, so am ever grateful for my 'trip' via your pictures.

    Joanne, I hope some day that you can make it there! It was a feast for the soul.
    Theresa, we enjoyed the Uffizi immensely. My girls love mythology and told me the story behind many of the paintings. Also most entertaining were the side walk art sellers who would roll up their wares after hearing a whistle alerting them to the arrival of the police walking their way. Then back in business as soon as they passed.

    It does look beautiful, and warm, like another world. I love how the light seems so honey colored. But, I must be the only body in WI to feel glad it's still winter here.I was worried the other day that it seemed like it might be an early spring. Apparently that was a needless worry
