S... Foglia

Curiosando in Giardino will walk you around the photo gallery, S… floglia in a dream world were anyone can find inspiration to create their own green space. The beauty in a garden or a terrace full of flowers comes from the fusion between Nature and Human Labor: “When, after the heaped-up, often senseless, labours of men, nature makes a finishing pass with her chisel, lightening the heavy masses, removing the crude-feeling regularity and indigent gaps through which the bare, undisguised plan peeps out, and imparts a wondrous warmth to all that was created in coldly measured cleanness and neatness.”

(Nikolaj Gogol).

 

A garden can express the equilibrium between Man and Nature, it is always worth it to contemplate a green space that allows you transpire the care and love of its owner: seeing it is a source of inspiration, capable of taking your mind to positive thinking. Curiosando in Giardino welcomes you to… admire the wonders of green spaces, sumptuous or simple, large or small, rustically or sophisticated. However, always special because it is always loved by its owners.

 

If you have an inspirational green space you would like to share with us, please send us a picture to alberto@curiosandoingiardino.it: We will select a picture periodically and will publish the more representative images in the style of Curiosando in Giardino. Welcome!

Spring

Spring

The Spring When the sky comes back clear like the eye of a child, Spring awakens. And it walks to the murmuring forests, barely touching with his robe daintycolor of the sun beautiful carpets of mosses. Every blade of grass bears a diadem, Every drop trembles. Few bud blossoms somewhat fearful, and it hands its dainty rose-colored little mouth drinking a drop dew ... In lonely farmhouses the old men appear at the threshold and watch the ground that sprouts. The blackcap tries a little song embroidered of chirrs and then chirps like a little schoolgirl. Crickets whisper malicious words to white dressed daisies. Violets are sprouting … At night, the tree frogs sing a serenade for small stars. The balconies hatch because the night is mild, and someone forgets listening to what you say to the little stars, oh tree frog suffering from melancholia. (Ugo Betti)
