Giardino dell’Orticoltura Florence Italy


Florence, Italy, Firenze, Italia, Giardino dell’Orticoltura at dusk
Dear Art Lover,
     So, continuing my post from yesterday, I “discovered” the Giardino dell’Orticoltura on my way home from Giovanni’s.  I had decided to weave my way down unknown streets while biking home that evening.  I had a vague idea of where I was, but each T in the streets led me to re-evaluate my theory.  These days I get torn between my youthful love of getting lost on purpose to see what one can see, and getting back to my work because I never feel that I have enough time.

     Well, I had seen pictures of this park, but never really took the time to figure out where it is.  However, I heard a long time ago that an open door is an invitation.  So, when I rode past an interesting open gate, I turned around and decided to explore, rationalizing that “later will not likely come and I am here now.”

     Oh, what a delight!  And as the dusk approached, the sky became my favorite shade of blue!  Open at 8:30 every morning, the closing time depends upon the season.  From January through March, the park closes at 6 p.m.  Most of the time the park closes at 7 pm, with the summer months of June, July, and August allow you to enjoy this public space in the city until 8 p.m.  Naturally, I found myself being politely shoo’d out by the staff.  But I was happy to have my curiosity satisfied and I got to see tulips! 

Peace,
Kelly
