Apparently I love taking pictures of flowers in Italy (also doors). And while technically, these photos were taken in summer and not spring, I thought they were appropriate for this spring-themed Capturing Italy post. It’s been another long winter in many parts of the world, and, wherever you are, I hope you are starting to feel the first signs of spring.
Parole Italiane Primaverile – Springtime Italian Words
- Le stagioni = the seasons (l’inverno = winter, la primavera = spring, l’estate = summer, l’auttuno = fall)
- Il tempo = the weather
- I fiori = flowers (il fiore = flower)
- Il sole = the sun
- La Pasqua = Easter
“Natale con i tuoi, Pasqua con chi vuoi…” Christmas with your family, Easter with whomever you want, is a popular Italian saying. I have never spent Easter (or Christmas) in Italy (although I certainly hope to one day), so I can’t share any first-hand insight on Easter traditions in Italy. For that, I invite you to hop on over to Dianne Hales’ most recent post, Easter in the Italian Language.
Buona Pasqua a tutti! Happy Easter everyone! Enjoy the beauty of spring.
