Flowers in Italy

Italians love flowers and they are everywhere especially in the springtime. San Remo is known as the City of Flowers and even has a famous festival to celebrate flowers.

My favorites are the flower boxes with the brilliant colorful blooms.

The first time I traveled to Italy I fell in love with it. I started this blog when I was preparing to go to Italy for the third time. It seemed like I could never get enough of this beautiful place.I thought after that I wouldn't feel the need to return, but in less than a year I made my 4th trip to this beautiful country of my grandparents. I have just returned from a wonderful trip there and I know that I will be back sometime in the future. I feel at home there! I am a second-generation Italian-American with a passion for travel, and a particular love of Italy. I am a freelance writer and photographer, and write for La Gazzetta Italiana as well as several websites. I recently published a photo book from the first of three months in Italy, and have just completed writing my first book, "Memoirs of a Solo Traveler - My Love Affair with Italy," which is based on this blog and my solo travel adventure to Italy.

    Flowers are just such a glorious confirmation of God’s care and concern for us. It is hard to be depressed when watching an orchid bloom or even a simple periwinkle. I was surprised to see so many flowers that I categorize as subtropical. And yet they have blooming Azaleas which do not bloom in Miami, too hot. It is not a surprise to find that the Italians are so style concious, they have a lot of natural beauty to compete with for attention!
