How lovely to find this... nature claiming her place.
Ginnie Hart: It doers seen fitting, Elizabeth, doesn't it! Thank you.
C'est un endroit que j'aurais aimé visiter.
Ginnie Hart: Even in the rain it was very powerful, Martine.

Ginnie Hart: I hadn't thought of that, Cherry, but I can see it. smile

Pompeii’s great Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it is, Chad, even in the rain!
There is certainly still much to discover in the ruins of Pompeii. This arch is still beautiful and probably deserves to be rehabilitated
Ginnie Hart: It would be good to spend more than 2 hours there, Marie, for sure. There is so much to see!
Quand la nature reprend ces droits ..j'adore !!
Ginnie Hart: The history lives on, even though claimed by Mother Nature!

I love this point of view, Ginnie. It is an amazing place, knowing that it is already almost 2000 years gone..
Ginnie Hart: Thank yuou, Astrid. I know. It still stays in my memory as unbelievable!
Als je Pompeï leest en dan ook nog in de regen is het helemaal triest.
Gelukkig fleuren de gele bloemen het geheel op.
Mooi geheel en compositie
Ginnie Hart: Thde flowers definitely brightened up this place, Marjolein! Bedankt.
seems that dandelions bloom the world over!! this is a strange road to nowhere lol neat pic sister!
Ginnie Hart: Just think, Elaine. Someone used to have their living room in that very spot!

Could have been the pigsty. Smell the bacon.

My momma once visited the ruins and she said there were very naughty people living there. Apparently when Vesuvius blew it's top, some citizens were caught in the act.
Ginnie Hart: Along that line, Louis, there are at least 100 phallic carvings in the streets! (sigh) It must have been quite the place?!

I like your title - it looks dry and sunny, not rainy. I hope to see some more in Pompeji.
Ginnie Hart: It rained/drizzled the entire two hours of our Pompeii tour and then stopped at the end! I'm working on a post for In Soul as we speak...of Pompeii. If there's another good pic for SC, I'll include it here. Thanks.
I like all the flowers that have found a place to grow on the tops of the walls.
Ginnie Hart: Me, too. It was the perfect time to be there, even though it was raining.
I thought you might say, "Get out of your cave."
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, then! smile
After all this time, Ginnie, the archway still looks to be in good shape. Built to last.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Beverly. Leave it to the Romans, right?

The blossoms really pop in this composition!! How intriguing that some look like they're growing from the wall.
Ginnie Hart: Mother Nature always finds a way, Steven! Thanks.

that is somewhere I have always wanted to go
Ginnie Hart: I have now been twice, Paul, and have been amazed by it each time, even in the rain in April. I hope you have a chance to go there.
Nature takes over, as always Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: indeed so, Frank. She seems to have the final say!
nature reclaiming the destruction from the volcano Ginnie... good find and well framed....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Peter, and thank you.
It must have been a very substantial building. I've never managed to get there - but I found Pompeii by Mary Beard a fascinating read - highly recommended.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe one day you can see it foe yourself, Tom!

de natuur neemt terug haar plaats in Ginnie..

ook op deze bijzonder indrukwekkend site..

iets wat je moet gezien hebben als je in de buurt van Napels bent

greetings
Ginnie Hart: Mother Nature truly has reclaimed this place of history, Willy, and thankfully so. We passed Naples 3 or 4 times but never entered the city. They say if Mt. Vesuvius erupts again, 3 million people in the Naples area will not be able to escape. sad
Pompeii, Naples, Capri etc.
I still have not been to that part of Italy yet.
One day, G. wink
Ginnie Hart: You will love it, LC, if ever you get the chance. Just do it.
