This small city south of Florence is a true gem. Famous for it's palio or horse race that is held on the city's main square, it's a very big square, it offers many architectural wonders. These images are of the main cathedral the Duomo.
It wasn't long ago that we were surrounded by gorgeous spring flowers that were so much a welcome site after a long and very cold winter. As we enjoy the fall, we are always mindful of the nasty season that follows it and are only comforted by the hope for a new spring. The circle continues.
