The cobnuts are beginning to develop nicely. The dog will be pleased later this year when he can eat them on his walks!
A study of a bowl of pot pourri. Interesting shapes and textures.
Having not found any butterflies yesterday on my buddleia they appeared today instead enjoying my marjoram. This one is a small tortoiseshell.
Today the bees were busy enjoying the Buddleia in the sunshine although sadly for some reason no butterflies were to be seen.
As a lot of Naples is built on the side of a hill the are many sets of steps that can be used to climb up or down. Here is a typical set with a view of the bay just to be seen at the bottom.
There were many oleander trees both in and about Naples but most of the flowers were various shades of pink, so I was pleased to get this photograph of a white flower instead.
More photos from my short break in Naples. I was very much struck by the architecture of the Galleria Umberto and this is another shot which shows of some of that beauty.
