This morning we woke to music coming from the street.
Downstairs a musical trio was ambling along trumpeting the joy of spring. Suddenly the signs of 'primavera' are everywhere...
The first green shoots sprouted this week
and the magnolia trees burst into bloom.
They aren't common in Milan, so this stunning display caught us by surprise.
Pansies brightened the footpaths and peeked from window boxes,
- while shorts
we enjoyed lunch on our balcony for the first time this year AND
our local gelateria re-opened!
Primavera ha arrivato a Milano! Benvenuto!
