Happy Easter!

They really go for Easter here in Puglia!  Even Ikea is closed for 3 days this week!

Giant Easter eggs for £125!

There's the real Easter bunny.  Thank you Mr RR!

Time for tea

Yesterday was another glorious day here in the South East and seeing as Mr RR and I are heading back to Italy this week, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to treat my parents to afternoon tea and headed to the very special Gravetye Manor.

At the risk of being boring, as I'm aware there's been a floral theme of late, (I'll get back to photos of sea and sun-bathed Italian buildings soon I promise!) I couldn't resist taking photos of the beautiful blooms.

We enjoyed our tea inside in one of the grand lounges, but there was evidence some had enjoyed theirs outside in what could perhaps be the perfect English country garden!

After a difficult patch, I feel I'm appreciating spring more than ever before and I'm already looking forward to seeing our little town of Monopoli come back to life as it feels the warmth of the sun.  Ah!

What a glorious day!

It was an early start and from the moment I got up the sun put a smile on my face today!  Isn't it a treat to have such a boost after so much gloom and grey?  I love it!

It reminded me of this:

"Labial sunny - for lips and delicate areas"!!!

Hope today was a great day for you too!

Natural beauty

Is it a sign I'm getting old?   More and more I find myself cheered by spring flowers.  Simple things, eh?!

We hope to be back in Italy soon, but for now, but here's some photos from a lovely day in Richmond.

Beautiful Terrace Gardens
What a perfect place to rest
