Florentine Gardens

P1020060
I skipped some of the museums in Florence in favor of the lovely parks and gardens - after months of seeing nothing but the inside of an office, I was craving a little nature.

I was there a bit early for the spring flowers to be out in full bloom, but the fresh air and vitamin D more than made up for the lack of flowers.

The easter holiday meant that Florence was bursting with the seams full of tourists, but I'm guessing because it was chilly, the gardens were much less crowded.

Um....wow! I don't know if it was more crowded than these photos convey, but it looks like you had that magnificent place nearly to yourself. I was drawn in by that first image, and then continually as I scrowled. I like the one with the people casually strolling against that amazingly long leading line. Thanks for sharing.
