Spring was just about to arrive when I left the Amalfi Coast two weeks ago for my trip to America. The plants were budding and blossoms were starting to appear. Around a corner I caught a glimpse of wisteria and around another peach blossoms. When I left, I knew that spring would be in full swing by the time I returned in three weeks. After reading Scintilla’s most recent post over at Bell’Avventura, called Rhapsody in Blue, about the beautiful flowers in her garden in Positano, I now know that I have quite a surprise in store for me when I return next week. Head on over and see Scintilla’s beautiful Positano garden photographs and read about her Easter visit to Positano.
Seeing the lovely flowers in her garden made me so happy today that I couldn’t resist including Bell’Avventura as this week’s Sunday Shout-out. One of my favorite blogs, Scintilla knows how to tell a good story and always in the most beautiful way. I also love reading about life just down the road in Positano. Due to the road closures and the rainy spring weather, I haven’t been over to Positano nearly as often as I would like. Now that I see these photos I realize just what I am missing!
I am pretty sure that life doesn’t get any better than sitting under a pergola of wisteria! I have sweet memories of reading under wisteria and watching the petals blow off in the breeze and slowly flutter down to land on my book. I can’t wait to see it myself next week! Hang on Spring . . . I am coming!
Scintilla @ Bell'Avventura says
Thank you so much Laura! I just noticed that you have another blog which I will avidly follow too!
Ciao Scintilla! But thank YOU for all the wonderful words and photographs you share! I discovered when I lived in Washington, DC, of all places, that I absolutely love wisteria. Your garden pergola looks like a little piece of heaven to me!
The other blog – would that be the Amalfi Coast Daily Photo? I did just create that. Do you think people will like it? I really enjoy the daily photo websites like Rome Daily Photo and Venice Daily Photo, and I love photographing the Amalfi Coast. I thought it seemed like a good combination! I haven’t done anything with it yet, because I am traveling and I am not sure I can take it on myself at the moment. If you are interested, or if you know anyone who might be interested in collaborating, please do let me know. Thanks!
I suddenly realize my reader has lost Scintilla’s blog! That’s why I hadn’t heard from her!!!
Your gracious shout-outs are always so great, Laura. Brava.
I wanted to thank you for leaving your kind comments on my blog and wished to reassure that I will not entirely disappear, I will post a little less and have fewer chances to run through my blogroll every night like I do now.
Ciao and hurry home

Nice shout out. I enjoy her blog, too!
I hope it will be truly spring by the time you get here. It’s chilly and rainy over here on the Adriatic Coast…
Chef Chuck says
That would be a natural calming effect being under the wisteria!
Love the new life and can smell it from here! Grazie!!
Ciao Chow Linda says
Just found your blog and will be following you from now on. Love the photo of you next to the faraglioni. I enjoy reading Scintilla’s too.
Ciao Lola! Always happy to help out! And always happy to hear from you when time permits. I do know about busy schedules! Good luck with work, and I will make sure we keep in touch! I am on my way back in a few days… coming soon now! 🙂
Ciao Karen! Grazie! If I remember correctly, I actually saw Scintilla’s blog on South of Rome. So many thanks to you, too! 🙂
Ciao Saretta! The weather looks like it will be pretty rainy all week in Amalfi. Sorry to hear it is for you, too. I hope there is some sun by this weekend! Either way I will be happy to be home. Thanks for writing!
Ciao Chuck! I just love wisteria and was so happy to discover it grows on the Amalfi Coast so well. Now I just have to figure out where it might work in my garden…. think think think… 🙂
Ciao Linda! Nice to meet you! And thank you for commenting and introducing me to your great blog. Spaghetti with broccoli rabe is one of my favorites! In Scala, which is a city located up in the mountains above Amalfi, there is a chestnut festival in the autumn every year. But it really could be a broccoli festival as well since it coincides with the good broccoli season there. I look forward to trying your wonderful looking recipes and following your site!
