B is for Boboli

Boboli Gardens, Florence, Italy, 2008. A few of my favorite statuary. This pleasure garden lies at the heart of Florence, a green lung, as it were. Built by Cosimo I de’ Medici in the 16th century, it’s a huge pleasure garden. I remember being exhausted once we’d seen all we’d come to see. The statuary is charming and whimsical.
