I’m very grateful I was nominated by http://thepickyeatertravels.wordpress.com for a 7-day photo challenge, but as this is neither a daily blog nor a photography blog, I’ll give it a one-day try for now! Pickyeater posts great travelogues and her “Guides” to cities and countries are so well researched, illustrated and explained they make you feel like planning your next trip right away!
So I’m including a nature picture I took in the Garden of Ninfa, Italy a few years ago. The garden was landscaped in the early 1920s by a group of people among which one was an Englishwoman and one an American heiress. It’s managed by a non-profit Foundation, and is about an hour south of Rome. It only opens on specific days, and you have to book your tickets online. Does anyone know what these pink plants are? I never thought of nature in terms of all that pink!
I’m nominating an eclectic blog, http://zipfslaw.org with posts on language, language statistics and lovely anecdotes about life in Paris and travelling elsewhere for his job. Hoping this inspires him to post one of his own nature pictures too -maybe we can both pass on the “on each 7 successive days” – but please keep the ball rolling by nominating another blog 🙂
