I found a cool and tranquil haven at the Villa Aldobrandini, away from the bustle of via Nazionale.
|View from the top of the garden on the villa property|
The villa was constructed around the 1600's, I think...I photographed the sign so I could read it again later but without my glasses I ended up cutting off quite a bit in the photo and some information was lost!
I wonder if these "rock carpets" are original.
I love the design.
I imagine the creator looking around for just the right stone, like I do with my fabric when creating a quilt.
I imagine the care someone took in placing each stone in just the right place, like I do with my fabric when I make a scrap quilt.
Inspiration is everywhere.
Be sensitive to your surroundings and let them inspire you.
