Guess what these are

On one of our first evenings in Florence, we came across these beautiful, lighted objects near the Ponte San Trinità. They weren’t here last time we were in Florence and I was just delighted by them. Can you guess what they might be?

On closer inspection, we discovered that they were olive trees wrapped in some sort of white cloth and then lit from below. They were my favorite new addition to Florence, but then we went back to see them again a few days later and they were gone. We wondered if maybe they were holiday decorations. I guess I’ll have to come back to Florence again in the winter and see if they are here around the holidays.

  1. After having more computer problems, we’ve finally resolved them (we think)–and so have been able to read your blog. We are so very very envious AND delighted to read about your life in Italy, especially the ones about shopping and food. Vicarious travel with you two will be a real gift. Thank you.

  2. Yes. They were olive trees wrapped in some sort of white cloth and then lit from below. They only stayed there for the holiday season. They disappeared by the end of January.
