In a week filled with rain... on one very unlikely day I was walking home from a studio we don't normally use, on a route I don't often take... the sun unexpectedly peered out from behind the clouds, just as I walked past the entrance to the Boboli Gardens... which to my surprise - for this week only - had no entrance fee. So in I went. Just like that. An unexpected visit. To a very pretty place. Where statues hide in every alcove and line every pathway in silent but serious conversation.
