Then while the kids spent time with friends Don and Sophia, we planted it!
The Tsikas! We still need to paint the pots though...

On Sunday as we were walking through the streets of Milan, William surprised me: "Why do you take all our teeth?" He then went on to tell me that he would not leave his milk teeth out for the tooth fairy because Mummy and Daddy are the ones who take the teeth. ( He hasn't lost any teeth yet, but I guess he's looking forward to it and receiving some coins...)
Next, he went on to say Santa Clause doesn't put the presents under the tree, so I asked "who does?"
"you do that too" came the gleeful reply. He then called Emma over so she would confirm this to silly ol' me. "Right, Emma? Santa Clause doesn't put presents under the tree, Mummy & Daddy do!" And obligingly, she confirmed.
We've been unmasked!
Oh well, he will be 6 in two weeks time...

Then, one of Za Za's dog buddies stole one of William's shoes and we went on a mission to find it.
We posted Emma below where we had lost the dog's trace as he ran off with the shoes, then William and I have the dog thief the other shoe and ran after him.
We found the shoe in the dogs hide out along with some stockings and socks. ( Today there was a black high heeled shoe and a football too!

Love the blue ceramics in the garden
An amazing and impressive cemetery
The "pini" (pine cones) a symbol for prosperity, abundance, fertility...
The Easter procession in Noto; Jesus Christ
On his way to meeting mother Mary.
Emma in Noto
The mythical cinque cento in Ferrari red!
Local marketing technique; bunnies & parrots
I love the lemon tree in our garden. I wonder how old it is...?
Candle light & fireplace for heat at the home we are staying in... Cosy!
Local produce for a simple cold dinner...
And breakfast time!
With hats borrowed from the house owners...
It's SO good to feel the warmth of the sun and sit in the green of nature again after a winter of concrete in Milan.
