Florence

I first went to Florence in 1971 –  a very long time ago. It’s where Robert and I met in 1973. We lived there for a while and have been back countless times since.

Here is a collection of photos taken in late October and early November this year.

Also in Fiesole, pumpkins and chestnuts.

and more fish on a porcelain plate in the museum at the top of the garden.

Such elegant plates…

and as for the view!

When I win a million billion pounds in some lottery I will live in this valley.

or walk down to the Ponte Vecchio

and look at the river.

I could live in a very simple cell

as long as they sometimes let me out to eat doughnuts.
