A little Christmas gift...

Hello friends !!

To wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year we decided to share with you once again part of our trip ... enjoy video... 

Visit to our friend Michael Kiessling

Saturday, May 18 we made a visit to our friend Michael Kiessling Pittenhart (Germany).

With friends Cedric and Loretta we left early in the morning, stopping in Bressanone to meet Roberto Siniscalchi, and then continue to our destination. Cross the Brenner Pass between snow-covered mountains we went down in the sweet German plain in a day of bright sunshine.

Once we had the pleasant surprise to meet our friend Erika from Verona who had the same idea: to visit the splendid greenhouse of Michael. We got lost between the pallets full of plants in perfect condition and very soon we raided specimens ...

We also had the good fortune to see many flowers both among Opunziacee that among other species. The friendliness of Michael both in explaining the various methods of cultivation in offering refreshments was, as always, rise to the occasion.

Now I look forward to our party on September 1st where he will give a lecture and lead his beautiful plants ....

 

 

Klagenfurt May 2018

On May 12th, after having enjoyed the last years of the beautiful fair in Klagenfurt, we decided to go again this year: and what better opportunity to make a nice gathering of friends ??


From Veneto and Friuli we left at dawn to arrive in opening hours: Elvia and Moreno had already risen the night before. Me, Sergio, Francesco, Elena, Giorgio, Giuliano, Franco, Carlo, Moreno (R.) and Mattia found ourselves at the last autogrill before the border. Coffee, ritual greetings and then off to the fair!


Arrived we find almost everything ready ... it starts with the ride ...


Outside there are plants from particular gardens, trees, shrubs, aquatic plants, fruit orchids and carnivores ... in short, there is something for everyone!


Once inside the complex we immediately faced the refreshment point and on the right the association's counter; a few meters and we are in the exhibitors' salon.


As you enter we find Elvia and Moreno, with the close prof. Zanovello with Luigina: some greetings and we start with purchases!


In full style of our meeting mid-morning and at lunch we set the banquet, behind the van of Giorgio, to which everyone has participated with something and we revel in great: come also friends of Rome with cultural exchanges of wine ...


Afternoon relax ... chat ... last purchases ... a couple of good beer ... and at 4 pm it's time to remove the noise and free the hall.

We help to load everything and take the road back ...


Shortly after the border, a stop in Camporosso for the afternoon picnic: the company is some of the best and there is no lack of laughter. Sazi in every sense we drink a coffee and we all hug with the hope to see you soon again to spend a beautiful day together.

Thanks to everyone, you're the best!

Trentino friends were able to further improve the already great event by increasing the number of exhibitors, setting up a captivating choreography of welcoming visitors and offering lectures very interesting. is undoubtedly a great example of how the collaboration of a cohesive group leads to excellent results.

We have met many friends from many parts of Italy and meet other enthusiasts.

Baby's chair operation

On May 22, after several weeks of messages to make arrangements, we gladly accepted the invitation of Erika and Cristiano to visit them by bringing together a group of friends around Lorenzo: the wonderful new arrival.

All friends, started from the middle of northern Italy, came together at 11.

We all punctual found in home of the kind of Christian parents: Sandra and Bruno. We take the opportunity right now to thank them for their availability and sympathy.

These were (in alphabetical order): Alfredo, Cedric, Claudio, George, Eleonora, Elvia, Erika (Vr), Franco, Giuliano, Miriam, Moreno, Nicoletta, Nicolò, Paolo, Silvia, of course Erika, Cristiano and the small Lorenzo, Elisa, Sandra, Bruno and grandfather.

Some friends unfortunately were not able to be with us, but they were still with us: we will certainly be other opportunities to spend days together.

After greeting everyone, the "cooks" Giorgio and Giuliano, with the help of the landlord, they are put on the grill for preparing the meat; others are entertained in conversation, admiring the Cristiano's collection (await the promise 'Sperico') and all the beautiful plants of the mother, but what most attracted them all is the beautiful and very smiling Lorenzo. (Mom and Dad congratulations !!!!)

Approached the lunch hour there were brought to the terrace where we set the table with delicacies brought from all friends (how we always do in our "Summer" meetings).

When we were all at the table we delivered a thought for the home children, small symbol of the affection we feel for them and for Erika and Christian.

There was a magnificent sun that lights the day, and the hosts have also thought to take shelter during lunch with umbrellas.

After the mega lunch we moved under the pergola under the beech: we have been here all afternoon in total relaxation. Between a chat and the other, we ate sweets, drank coffee and tasted the delicacies "heady" work of Cristiano's mother and the same Christian.

The afternoon flew and in a moment came the 6 pm. It's time to let a little quiet the guests very kind, we greeted everyone and promised to meet again soon, sure to never forget this meeting.

Thank you all for being together, a special thanks to the family of Christian and Erika: you are fantastic !!

 

See you soon…

 

Ps: the name of the operation is a Giorgio's stroke of genius
