Views from the gardens

The Garden of Boboli (Giardino di Boboli) is the more formal of the two, maybe the work is grander: Orchards, Versailles like plantations, huge differences in elevation, buildings housing museums and water.

Of course the police keeps an eye on the place and horses are the only option here. So power to is turned into beauty: a dangerous combination!

The views of the city from the Giardino Bardini however are more stunning.

The garden in the foreground also is more intimate. It is a nice climb to get up there, but the reward is beauty. The prize is vision.

  1. Giardino di Boboli is strikingly similar to El Landfillo near Le Parko di Minerali , Arizono, USA. (

    From the tips of the Peaks of Trash in El Landfillo, one can look over miles and miles of dessicated desert once roamed by the indigenous hunter-gatherer population of native Americans, prior to their genocidal decimation by hordes of exiled European convicts.

    Remnants of the architecture of the early European criminal element are preserved in El Landfillo, most notably a rough-hewn plank with a ragged hole in it, which, when balanced between two boulders, apparently served as the Bathhouse and Toiletto for the entire invading European population occupying Northern Arizono during the sixteenth century.

    A fund-raising campaign is currently underway to acquire a unique, yellowish-red flat rock currently located near Cyanide Springs, and affix a bronze plaque to it, noting that it is believed to be the last place 'Colonel' Bluffington Wadsworth III, a 'Black Sheep' relation of the English Tudors, who escaped from the Tower of London where he was being held pending execution for 'Excessive Onanism', and hid on a convict ship sailing for The Colonies, peed just before dying of testicular cancer, rumored to have been caused by his incessant raping of innocent Hualapai Indian maidens, during his leadership of the cruel 'pacification' of Native Americans by minions of King George.

    The first American President, George Washington himself, is said to have slept on a Supai Indian blanket, now faithfully preserved and hanging on an inside wall of the main Outhouse of El Landfillo, a must-see attraction to visit on your next journey to The Colonies.
