may  »  roses

as we walked through the hills of camogli we got to peek into all the villa gardens -
at least the ones that did not put up two meter stone walls with barbed wire at the top (!).
they were filled with all kinds of flowers - lavender, geranium, poppies, wisteria - but especially pink roses.
early in the morning, before the sun had gotten strong enough to burn away their delicate scent, was the best time of day.
