It is important when you make a change to a new place to try too assimilate as best you can.  As most Italians go on holiday in August so did Zoe and I.  This especially important when living in Firenze because of the unrelenting heat.  In July and August it is typically 90-95 but his year it moved from 95 to,over 100.  It is actually the hottest place in Italy.  We took a fabulous 11 day trip Lake Como.  I will be doing a couple posts on this trip but as I was going through my pictures I discovered I had a obsession with trees and hydrangeas. This post is dedicated to that obsession.

These are taken on the road above the lake between Torno and Faggeto. The two little towns that Zoe and I stayed.





Look closely and you will see pears on this tree.

These pictures were taken from various ferry rides.So much fun getting from one town to another on a ferry.


These two pictures were taken in the gorgeous garden of the second place we stayed  in Faggeto at Domus Plinii 1792.  

Hydrangeas were everywhere and really big blossoms in all colors.  

This might be my favorite picture. 


The green isn’t the most dramatic color but I think it has a vintage look to it.






This was a great trip and I look forward to sharing more of it with you.
