I've been away, but I haven't forgotten.

Faded grandour being restored.
I've been away from this site, things at work have been getting busy but I managed to fit in holidays to Italy and Amsterdam.
Italy wasn't solely a holiday but staying in Riva del Garda at the tip of Lake Garda in the northern Italian lakes was magical. I loved the faded elegance and grandour of the place and these gardens summed that up perfectly.
Then in Amsterdam I was marvelling at the bulbs and resisting (fairly successfully with the help of friends) from buying all of them.
But while I've been away I haven't forgotten and have a few photos to share later on (my cactus flowered). I was reminded to come back after picking up the magazine for the train ride back from Dublin last night. It was Gismo's profile on the inside cover and remembering how friendly everyone was when I joined back in August that encouraged me to come straight back on this morning.
