It’s cold. It’s officially cold, and I’m not ready for it yet. For a few days it felt like we skipped right past autumn to winter. That’s no good! Temperatures across Italy have been well below the seasonal norm this past week as a nasty cold front swooped down from Russia. This has sent me back to my summer pictures with pleasure! Just looking at the vivid yellow and bright sunny days warmed me up inside. Here are some yellow-themed moments from life on the Amalfi Coast this summer  . . .



Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Broke Garden

Broke lounging in the early summer sun



Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Church Sorrento

Can’t do yellow without including the bright yellow Baroque facade and atrium on the Chiesa della Madonna del Carmine that sits right on Sorrento’s Piazza Tasso. It always makes me smile!



Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Crosswalk

If you look in the Italian pictionary under “fruitless endeavor,” this is the image you’ll see.



Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Ravello Festival

Ravello was covered with beautiful pansies in early spring.



Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Yellow Dress

This could have gone with pinks last week, but I love how the yellow dress at the end just jumps out!



Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog San Michele Anacapri

Pale yellow and white interior of the Chiesa Monumentale di San Michele in Anacapri



Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Wild Snapdragons

Wild Snapdragons, Scala



Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog View Villa Rufolo

View looking toward Salerno from the Villa Rufolo, Ravello.



Stop back by next week for the final color themed summer photo post!

    Love the snap dragons and villa Rufolo pic. Just to think you can wander in all year round to see the gardens! I've never seen them in summer but I love the courtyard the best.

    Ciao Scintilla! I love that snapdragons grow wild here, and it's one of my favorite parts of early summer. You'll have to come see the Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone gardens next summer!

    Ciao Anne! Yes, those bright colors cheered me up, too. We had a couple of days of sun, but it's back to the wind and the rain again. What a rainy autumn!

    Ciao Food Hunter! Thanks! Hope you can come back again soon!
