The pretty summer flowers.

Tuscany through my eyes: Week 27

Now that my project about Tuscany over the seasons is over, I have decided to start a new project: Tuscany through my eyes. Well, more or less… I am planning on publishing one or more photos of Tuscany every week, and not just some beautiful photos, but images that “match” the way I see my beautiful region at that time of the year. I will publish photos that I have taken and photos that I have not taken but I wish I had! 52 posts to show you Tuscany the way I see it and feel it. Here are the other posts in the series.

Week 27 – Summer flowers

Nothing says more “summer in Tuscany” than geraniums and some kind of wild roses.

If you happen to visit Tuscany in June, July or August, you will see plenty of balconies literally overflowing with geraniums. People believe they are also repellent for mosquitoes, which makes them even more attractive!


Usually, in June, most roses have already finished their blooming season. But wild roses (also known as old roses – rose antiche) are still gorgeous.
