la casa della nonna.

keep it just the way she left it,
please don't touch grandma's home.

♡♡♡
"she had this beautiful garden: two or three pine trees, a cherry tree, that grew sweet red cherries every spring, a kaki tree, kiwies, and of course the pear tree - she gave me and my sister a couple of pears every time we went for a pic nic. she had rabbits and birds she took care of so well. and she grew pumpkins, carrots, peas and tomatoes in her garden. the garden smelled of fruits and vegetables. the house smelled like ancient memorabilia and naftaline from the big wardrobe in her bedroom. the kitchen was yellow, smelled of fresh white bread - I remember she kept there her favourite little cakes to eat - ferrero's fiesta."
♡♡♡

I wish I was still there,
listening to her sweet voice singing to me.
