Spring has sprung:
That tree had not bloomed yesterday afternoon;
This morning it was all pinkish gauze and laughter.
It was a short stay but nice

Evening stroll at Noordwijk's beach
Like a fine veal cut

Celebrating Valtentine's day

Or so they seem to think at the Covered Market in Oxford.
Fine Massacre Day, friends!

Colours of Monti

Monti is a trendy neighbourhood in the centre of Rome (posturing as bohemian).

So The Love is going:
“Is this your definition of 'NEXT'?”

And I'm shrugging him off, for to me “next” bears no sign -no stigma - of the instantaneous, even if definitions specify immediacy.
This is the next blog, isn't it?
So what the fuss is all about?

The Bibliotheca Hertziana is not about to go anywhere... )


As usual, more pictures are available from my Flickr account.

...Se prendre de bec (to have a verbal fight)

D'où l'expression: Se prendre de bec

These silly gulls were so entangled that they even tried to fly off together when I moved on to see if they would seperate.
Much hilarity ensued (mine).
It took them a while to let go of each other.

Today I had a sad,
So went down to the kitties.
They told me all was fine,
And did I have the crunchies?

They did a little dance:
I had brought some crunchies
They covered me with hair,
And I had a happy.

French street artist C215 has been posting some of his stencils over Rome and while I am still to spot any of his Roman cats series, yesterday i spotted two of his homage to Caravaggio stencils on a post box on Via del Babuino.

This is the side towards Piazza del Popolo:

C215 via del Babuino

And this is on the other side (Direction Piazza di Spagna):

C215 via del Babuino

I have collected a few more here but you can also look at his whole portofolio there.

Because - obviously - I haven't got better things to do...
So here's a random picture:

Bits of a movie set, in Cinecitta.

Frascati has become a study in watercolours

Meanwhile there is a car covered in snow just underneath my window: probably from someone who lives in Rocca Priora or Rocca di Papa.
Here,  midway up the slope to Frascati, we have only rain.

Ours isn't a chic place but, occasionally, it grooms up a bit...

Sunset over Borghesiana
This was happening on the roof of the church of Santissimo Nome di Maria (across from the Trajan Column):

Burlesque at Santissimo Nome di Maria

Caption away!

This is mine...

I am celebrating a long (4 days) weekend.
