A shady lane...did you walk the path? It looks delightful!
Vieni, c'è una strada nel bosco,il suo nome conosco,vuoi conoscerlo tu?...(Come, there is path in the woodsI know its namedo you wish to know it?)This romanza (La strada nel bosco), usually sung by the Tuscan baritone Gino Bechi (1913-1993), comes to mind...
What a nice shape the flowering tree makes over the walkway. You caught a perfectly beckoning sight.
What an inviting path. Is that a white rhodie?Have a great weekend!
@VP: thanks for the translation but I would have understood! I don't, however, believe I know Gino Bechi. Funny though, I was listening to (and singing along) Verdi yesterday!@Don and Krise: yes, white and pink rhododendrons. They become huge trees in Cornwall.
That is quite the most beautiful lane I have seen lately.I have the issue of "breast feeding" on my main blog today Pick a Peck of Pixels
@ ciel - Sorry, I thought your Italian was like my French... Bechi was one of the greatest Italian baritones of the time: he left very few records (a Nabucco with maria Callas) but many movies.Now I want to know which opera you were listening/singing...
@VP: Il Trovatore (Callas-di Stefano-Scala 56) and then a bit of Bellini. Ebe Stignani e Maria Callas nel duetto Adalgisa-Norma (il duetto che mi piace di più).
@VP: P.S.: I don't like Nabucco...
@ ciel - I agree with everything. Bellini is great, I love I Puritani. Nabucco is boring (except the choir).
I wish rhododendrons did that well here in Ontario. Where I grew up (New England in the US) they grew wild in the woods. But I fear I didn't appreciate them back then.
oh Ciel, so adorable!Great post!Léia
