Topic tags/keywords: bardini gardens florence italy resource

Yesterday, my wife Gail and I went to the Bardini Gardens in Florence. Like the Boboli Gardens it is built on hill with some shade and some sun. It just goes to prove that one can buld a garden almost anywhere. There are magnificent views of the city. Truly a garden not to miss.

The first five shots are from the Botanical Garden in Florence which were taken from the fence as the garden was closed for the day for our (in)convenience. :(

The correct name of the gardens is the *Bardini Gardens*, not the Bartolini Gardens which I originally erroneously posted under.

isn’t this beautiful.
(and then I think of my yard .. oh so much to do) :)

will you be heading to Piza as well?
Whenever I think of Italy, I can’t not think of the baptismal building beside the Leaning Tower… what an extraordinary experience it was to hear the acoustics within.. one of my finest memories.

Marvelous pictures of the Bardini Gardens Jroot. How long did you roam in the garden( because it looks quite big)?
