A Sicilian spring in May

Posted by Suzanne on 13 May 2016


A glorious past Sicilian spring in May:

wild spring flowers; the planting of a terrace above village rooftops; fields, mountains and valleys so green; gardens in bloom by the sea; the last of the winter snow; bright lidos ready; and a gentle, spring light before the coming of the dazzling Sicilian summer.


Scroll down and enjoy a past Sicilian spring in the month of May, 2014.
