Gasping With Delight !!




beautiful garden on Lake Maggiore, next door to Lake Como




yes, there are actually gardens like this, too perfect to believe,
even the pebbles are raked until all are level.

life is good here.

some photographers were doing a photo shoot of this lovely set decoration,
& we got to take a few minutes to see them at work.

the rainy season will come soon, and then the winter time, when all will
return to only the locals.  
I don't think I would mind the rain or a bit of cold, do you?
