Arrivederci Italia !


Sunrise on the morning of my departure to catch the flight to Rome and then back to Australia
after a lovely 10 day stay in central Italy to wind up an amazing 2 months of travel around the UK and Europe.

Linking in with Skywatch Friday


. . . . and some extraordinary flowers spotted in Brittany. If someone is able to identify them, I'd be very grateful !

Joining in with Nick's Floral Friday Foto and

Used to know the name, but it escapes me now - extreme beauties - these little flowers! Can't wait to see your pics from Italy (hope you went also outside Rome, although there's plenty to see there)

A great last sunrise! I wish I could do a trip to Europe like that, and see the places I remember from when I was a child.

What a trip that you have had.

Hi i am so envious of your travels to Europe, i will be back here to see your shots. And thanks for visiting my post on hoyas. You should start collecting again, as a lot of people around the world are into this addiction right now, haha!

gorgeous sky photo.

the name of your flower is bleeding hearts.

Thank you one and all for your kind comments and especially to "Felicia" for identifying the flowers - one can now easily see how they are so called.

jeannettestgermain: Yes, other parts of Italy visited include Milan, Florence, Ancona, Fano, Fossombrone, Perugia and Urbino (birthplace of Raphael). I had been blessed to visit other regions of Italy as part of a 3-month unguided tour of Europe over 40 years ago, so it has been refreshing to explore the continent with more mature eyes!
