In the meantime, the weather has been wonderful and unseasonably warm with little precipitation. Aside from a couple of inches of snow so far this winter has seen temperatures hovering in the high 40s to high 50s. This weekend promises to get up to the 60s by Sunday. Amazing!

|the arid garden|
|Palazzo in Perugia, Italy|
|St. Mark's church|
