My dad and I celebrated Mayday with a nice trip to the mountains and a lovely lunch of mushrooms pasta and roast. And a nice red wine.

To digest it we went walking and I took some pics. I am particularly proud of the butterfly ones. She stood still long enough for me to take the pics.

Here are some of my recent efforts:

I went recently back to my hometown (yeah it's 30km over but I hadn't been there for a proper trip down memory lane since I got back.)
If somebody is interested the town is called Reggio Emilia. Here are some of the best views a grey and rainy day had to offer:

On Easter sunday we went to Colorno, a small town near Parma, where the gardens of one of the Duke of Parma country houses have been recently ave been restored to their glory:
