Noto Infiorata

I've been aching to get out of the house and do more sightseeing. I spend so much time at home that I sometimes forget I live in Italy. Last weekend we took a much needed day trip with our friends, Alice and Blake, to Noto for Infiorata, their spring festival. The highlight of the festival is a street paved with flower mosaics. Here are a few of the pictures. The detail was stunning. It is hard to see the scale in the close up photos, but the first one should give an idea of the size.

We had a really good time. I can't wait to get out of the house again and see more!
