Italy and Nature’s Haunted House of Green

As I walk though the alleys and streets of Verona, Lake Garda and Venice, I occasionally come across these beautiful colors that nature has painted on the stone.  I now find myself seeking them out.  They are bold and the designs original..

    Lovely – and so relevant for me. The slate here in Wales is covered by beautifully coloured spreads of litchen, which I have been trying to photograph.

    And natures life always blossom more beautifully with the coming of each new day. Your spirit always seems to understand true treasure…that in itself is a gift.

      I agree completely. And a gift? I dunno….I think we all see it…if we just stop and look 🙂 Thank you Wendell
