Places– of Charm

When people travel to distant locals, they notice art, cuisine,culture, and landscapes.  On our Italian lake country tour, I took a great interest in Italian landscapes and gardening styles.  I like the neatness of pruned bushes and trees with the graceful overflow in containers with statuary.  Below is a statue of Andromeda at Florence’s Boboli Gardens.

    In Greek mythology Andromeda was chained to a rock as a sacrifice to sate a monster, but is saved from death by Perseus, her future husband.
