Little wild flowers.
On our first day in Italy, we decided to walk up from the church on the main square (where our apartment was) all the way through the busy town of Amalfi and into the hills. Once amongst the endless lemon groves, we walked past various ruins - almost exclusively of old paper mills. Amalfi paper is still known for being the most luxurious in the world and the evidence of its beginnings is still discernible through farmlands and wild greenery. We came across an odd little house, in which the most beautiful display of fruit and veg: plum tomatoes hanging in bunches, fresh figs, drying chillies, huge pale lemons, gourdes, bunches of garlic, etc. This incredible Italian mama appeared, beaming and offering fresh home-made lemonade (which was the tastiest drink ever). We had a lovely cooling rest-stop before being sent on our way with armfuls of figs and grapes. When we stopped off to eat said figs and grapes, I took this photo of teeny tiny wild flowers.
Apologies for the bory (boring story) - I felt the need to explain that this photo was the result of hours of walking uphill in Italy and not another cheeky trip to Kew in London. That is all.
Saw so many of these adorable little cars. I liked that this one had matching graffiti on the wall behind it. Amalfi, Italy. September 2014.
