February 2017

Now that February is here, let’s look at last year’s, as is my habit.

I have only four photo folders for this month. February is short and it’s not yet as comfortable to stroll around due to cold winds.

All photos were taken in my town, on the beach or in Il giardino dei tarocchi (The Tarot Garden) 15 minutes away. This is an amazing sculpture garden by French artist Niki de Saint Phalle who lived and created there. It’s where the first four photos are from.

They are followed by some animal and plant friends. And the moon.

The only other people appear in artwork. Or on blogs. I must like it this way.

This is a part of my 2017 calendar in the making. January was here.

    1. Hihihi, sure! 😉 Thanks, Markus! I’ve been posting photos from here regularly since I’ve visited The Tarot Garden more than 10 times, so far. Here is another post from there with links to more posts at the bottom:

      The garden is closed until April but you can come on March 3rd, it’s free entrance from 9 am to 12.30 pm. 🙂 In April it opens normally, daily again, for a fee.

    1. Thank you, Joanne! No, it doesn’t change at all, they maintain it well but nothing new is added. I have noticed that on the last couple of visits I was more concentrated on the visitors and how they fit into the familiar environment. I think I’ll make a love post for Valentine’s from there. Love is in the air there!
