I remember seeing (and loving) another version of this, but I can't find the original so I can't remember what was different about it. But different or same, it's still gorgeous!

Oooo... this is lovely! I was trying to grow some hanging plants from my balcony to create colour and greenery on the white walls, but no success.

Those flowers look kinda like firework display...looking beautiful :)

Marsha said...

The vibrant colors are so full of newness and life against what appears to be a very old and plain looking structure! Interesting!

Stan said...

Quite an interesting photo. Looks like purple hair.

The roof is so beautiful, it must be pleasant staying under it.

How beautiful! Sends my imagination on a journey!

lareine said...

love the contrast between the blue door and the red-colored vines... and with this kind of wall, it sure brings out the bucolic charm of the place:)

Very nice. Amazing how pink the grapevines are.

Lovely shot! Pretty pink over barred door. Interesting. Happy WW.

Love that purple color on top - what kind of plant is it? And the blue door is nice too.

Sara Bonds said...

So beautiful. I really need to travel more.

Thanks for stopping by my WW.

That looks like an area worth a long stroll.
Interesting building & cool shot!
I'm sure there are quite a few cool picture ops there

Mojo said...

I had to laugh at Rambling's compliment to my memory. It's really not as good as all that, but this is a truly memorable shot that couldn't escape even me!

catsynth said...

That is beautiful, especially the contrast of the reds and purples against the old stone.

Carmen Shirkey said...

Almost looks like an alien life form taking over! Cool photo.

Janet said...

I want to live there!

Jennifer/moma4faith said...

How lovely those are - are they grapevines? I've never seen them look that way. Very intriguing photo.

Robin said...

I'm not sure exactly what they are, I've never seen pink vines that those. They do look a lot like grapes though.

Been to Fiesole a long time ago, Robin. This cottage is lovely! :)
