In the Olympic frame of mind, I decided to take a web tour over to Italy. I wondered what kinds of gardens I might find. If I lived in a city in Italy, I know I'd want to adorn my dwelling with a container garden like this one.
Somewhere outside of the city, there is a field of irises at the foot of a mountain. Check out this photo: Favignana Flowers. Isn't that beautiful?
And, because I could never be on a low-carb diet in Italy (or anywhere for that matter), I would hope there is a panetteria nearby. Yum!!
