I’m so sorry that I’m a bit late today but I’ve been having connection problems again …
Today has been one of those dull rainy days that just sort of dampen your spirit – I’m sure we all know them. On a proper grey day a photograph can come out with a certain sort of dark mysterious character that can be quite inspiring. The pitter-patter of rain falling on the roof on other rainy days can be kind of soothing, but a dull grey wet day without character just kind of seeps into you. So my theme today is:
a moody day
The photo I’m using is of a small plot of land just out back of my house in Bolognano. In Italy, in small villages like the one I live in are a mix between multi-storied old houses (the basement used to be where one kept their animals and still have a stone manger – the top floor was where silk worms used to be raised and so was full of mulberry leaves and stems – The middle floors is where the family lived) and vineyards. The photograph itself is partially blurred by raindrops that fell on the lens.

Silk Worm Farming in Italy
Hello … yesterday it rained, then it rained and in the end it rained some more. I have to admit that since I was in lovely company the rain didn’t bother me particularly. That is not usually the case though in winter. Gloomy winter days have a tendency to invite gloomy thoughts, what’s you’re reaction? Which brings us to today my theme for today:
the rain keeps falling

It’s been very wet here lately and just having come out of the flu…and then getting a cold, I’ve more or less been blocked in the house…
Thanks to Cee’s Photo Challenge and my Nokia 202 telephone, I have a couple of photos to show you, from 100 steps around my house!
You can’t really see it here, but it is snowing in this photo…the snow lasted perhaps about an hour, then it started raining again!
I took this photo about 30 minutes into the snow…from a nice warm spot in the house! You can see the roof in from of my house where the snow is collecting…
Thanks all for looking in!

After a week of rain, we have become very aware of the Sun, which we always take for granted on the good days 😉
rain upon the mountain
droplets dripping off the trees

Sunday Stills prompt this week is: This week lets think of things we take for granted.
Today is Sunday…and it’s raining, again, not really a day to go out for a walk. Here let me show you what the world looks like outside my loggia this morning:
Well you can’t tell much from this I guess, so let’s look a little further up!
Walking down to the center of town, we come first to the church, across from it is a fountain, and finally if we keep walking, there’s the kindergarten…and the caffè, which no respectable town in Italy, no matter how small, is without (but we can’t see it here). I guess, we’ll just turn around and go back to my house passing near a vineyard at this point!
Have a nice Sunday!
