Summer dreams

I'm always thinking of summer with it's warm possibilities. The season of fresh fruits and mature flowers. It's nice to look at old images and re live happy summer moment such as these at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden on a warm afternoon a few years ago.

This lovely town on the Ligurian coast is naturally famous for it's beautiful tourist port. These photos show a different side of this enchanted place, the campagna or countryside. The first one is  of course of a lovely golf course. We usually go there to have lunch at Il Nostromo famous for it's excellent cuisine and it's all you can eat policy.
