Two Beauties. My Picture Of The Day

This picture was taken during our September trip to Italy's beautiful Amalfi coast. Previous entries about the trip are here, here and here too. There are a couple of Pictures of the Day: there and there.

  1. What great texture and shape here..I see why it made your picture of the day!

  2. I bet that was a wonderous day ...

  3. Love the backlighting on the Yucca.

  4. That's beautiful! But on a less dignified note... it's possible to imagine the yucca bloom and the statue popping each other a high-5 (and I have to admit, I did imagine it and giggle). I'm jealous of your vacation, gorgeous!

  5. great esp the feelin g of height and vista sandy

  6. Just beautiful, but I must admit, the impressive mountains in the background make it that much more stunning. That yucca has a fabulous view, and if I were that statue I'd wish they'd turned me around! So envious of your trip!

  7. Dear Tatyana, I found now your blog...I have no words...just I say: SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!!!!

    Ciao ciao from Italy..and sorry for my english!


  8. Beautiful photo. I like the foggy background as it seems to enhance the yucca and statue.

  9. The large Yuccas are so impressive.
    They may not be fitting for my small gardens but still love them.

  10. Really beautiful photo, but I can't help looking at it having a humorous face. It looks like the yucca is the hair.

  11. Wow! What a beautiful place to reminisce on! Italy is incredible!

  12. They both are good, aren't they? The girl is one of the dancers in the garden of Villa Cimbrone.

  13. That is a beautiful photo...but you sure it's not a Phormium?

  14. Hoover Boo, thank you, it's a very interesting question. Maybe, maybe not. There is another picture in my file with another dancer from that garden. You can see the whole plants on the both sides of it, including the bases of the plants, and they look 100% as yuccas. I'll try to research this issue. Meanwhile, should we call this picture 'Two beauties'?

  15. Fantastic. Thanks for sharing!

  16. I believe this isn't a Yucca, but is a Phormium.Sorry!

  17. Thank you! I changed the name of the post!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
