This week has been the classic mix of the rain showers and glorious sunshine that herald the arrival of Spring. This is the time of year I don’t mind not having a car or scooter as walking becomes even more pleasurable an experience than usual here. Over the past few weeks I’ve made one of my favorite walks many times, each trip noting the blossoms and tiny leaves growing larger and brighter. While the sun was shining the other day, I took my camera along and photographed the blossoms along the way to share some of the beauty of spring on the Amalfi Coast here on Ciao Amalfi. Happy Spring!!

These wisteria photos are just a mere temptation of the beautiful blossoms bursting forth all over the Amalfi Coast. The wisteria is in bloom, and this is one my favorite events of the year here. Head over to Bell’Avventura where you can see just how gorgeous it is in Scintilla’s recent post Desperate Housewives on Wisteria Lane – Eat your heart out!

It is paradise!

    Thanks for sharing a beautiful Amalfi spring day. The wisteria in Positano and Amalfi certainly looks spectacular this year. I am really looking forward to it being in full bloom here, but we need a few more sunny and warm days yet, although the colour has started to peek through.

    After my first trip to Italy I knew I had to find a wisteria that would be hardy enough to survive Minnesota winters. Took a little research, but I am now the proud owner of a five year old wisteria vine that blooms during the summer and always sends me back to Italy with it's heavenly scent.

    I will Laura if I can get any shots that I feel are good enough! The Amalfi coast is a hard act to follow. I had a look this morning and there is more colour emerging slowly.

    It must be beautiful in AMalfi this time of year – I have a Wisteria bush too and it started blooming a few weeks back – I wish I were there right now enjoying the exquisite beauty of Amalfi!

    Lovely shots!

    Springtime blossoms just add to Italy's attraction.

    The Amalfi coast must be even more stunning at this time of year.

    Best,

    Ciao Barb! Wow, I'm so happy to hear that you found a variety of wisteria that can survive the cold winters in Minnesota. How wonderful! I'm still trying to find a good place in our garden where it will be happy and have room to grow. Thinking….

    Ciao LindyLouMac! Would love to see them! The sweet scent should be coming out soon. I can sometimes smell it here before I know where it's coming from. So lovely!

    Ciao Linda! I think this is my favorite time of the year here on the Amalfi Coast. May is certainly one of the most beautiful months, and April is leading right up to it! 🙂

    Ciao Alison! Yes, and with it the spring showers, too. Hope the sun is around the corner again!

    Ciao Alex! The blossoms and colors really do add to the beauty here. I wish I could capture the scent of the air to share here. I was amazed last year to learn that the air here really is scented with jasmine, orange blossoms and wisteria. 🙂

    My wife’s 50th is coming up and a island get away was the present I had in mind. We went to Rome and Florence last year and were positivley in love with Italy and the people. While thinking it through I reserched the Amalfi coast and now we’re booked for April 2011. I discovered your blog and want to thank you for the tips and inspiration! The Chistmas decorations look wonderful!
