I'm not sure where to start with this post, but I suppose Saturday is the best place. On Saturday morning by 8 a.m. all the cars had to be off the street, and the residents began erecting struturre on the street to protect their flower paintings from the elements. It has been rainy and cold here for the past few weeks, and no one knew what this weekend would bring. Saturday was rainy, but fortunately, not windy.

This afternoon, after the crowds had died down, the designs were still discernible on the street.
As I write this, Dr. C. and I have just polished off two pizzas from one of the best pizza places in Italy, and it's pouring rain outside, with a river running down our street, and thunder like cannons going off. Tomorrow no one will know that there were flowers on the streets. Wishing you a buona notte from Spello.
