Hello! This morning I was going to check for the small plants of golden tomatoes on my balcony, since I water them quite often, mostly twice a day, when I saw this little beauty taking a rest in the vase of the daisies and contemplating the view. Very quickly, I grabbed my camera and slowly focused on it. Glad I could immortalize the moment we said “good morning” to each other. It was like a little miracle of the day. Wishing a good day to everybody 🙂

Sieglinde (CIS: LE07503591000000616) is a beautiful, well-catered 19th century vaulted ceilinged apartment, only few steps away from the historical center of Lecce, a Baroque art jewel of Apulia. The cosy living – fire place area is where guests can find relax by listening to music or reading a good book chosen from the shelf. Besides, it is an ideal area for drinking a toast to the Italian holiday, enjoying a BBQ or a fine romantic dinner by candle light. What is more, guests may also take advantage of the free internet wifi connection by keeping on job activities even though they are on holiday.
Through the eyes of their host, Giuseppa Sallustio, it was the cosy feeling of home for her guests, friends, families who chose Lecce for their Christmas holidays.
They had great time visiting the old center of Lecce, in the South of Italy, enjoying its art, exploring the coasts without missing the chance of a long drive in the beautiful Itria Valley and then having good food all together by the fire place.

It is early morning, about 27.5°C, when, from the highway Lecce – Gallipoli – Santa Maria di Leuca (exit Galatone), I head to Seclì, a village in the South West of Apulia. Indeed, it is not too far from the Ionian coast.
The small ancient church, dedicated to S. Antonio, (one of the patron saints of the village), is on the right side, at the beginning of the main street, which leads to the center of the village. The church was built around the end of the 16th Century together with the ancient monastery, where friars belonging to the order of Friars Minor lived following the Franciscan Rule.
On June 13th, in the early morning, locals and even people on foot from the neighboroughood, get to the church for the celebration of the mass in honor of the humble saint, on small pilgrimages made of prayers and old singing.
A very suggestive moment in all the celebration is when local bakeries and common people offer and share “the holy bread of S. Antonio” with the community, as sign of deep devotion toward the saint and old ritual to express thanks at the reaping time, which happens again and again one year after an other.
Es ist der Beginn des Sommers und wir freuen uns, wieder mit neuer Fotografie zu beginnen. Hier sind wir in Lecce, im Süden Apuliens. Kommen Sie mit mir für einen Spaziergang?
Ein gutes Wochenende für alle!
