March 21st: Spring?

This morning it snowed here... we had no winter this year, no rain, not to talk about snow... Today Spring officially started and here's how the area looked like!

And this is the result of having snowed after such a springlike winter...

At least Chicca had great fun running in the snow, even if, at the beginning, she was a bit suspicious, she had never seen snow before!

When I tried to dry her up I realized that big chunks of snow were stuck into her fur... I had to soak her in warm water to get rid of it, but she definitely enjoyed snow!

Mondavio is a beautiful hilltop-town that stands just a few km inland from the Adriatic sea. The "Rocca" (fortress) was designed by Francesco Martini and it's an amazing example of his style.
