Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.
While thinking about why I love about Lake Geneva, it occurred to me that I am exceedingly fond of the long green lawns. The carpet that rolls from the hill on which the house is situated descending to the the lake’s edge. They remind me of the long sprawling farmhouse lawns near where I grew up. Old Victorian farmhouses set back from the road on gravel drives. Canopied with wide-armed oaks and the graceful limbs of sugar maples. Inviting a blanket, a book, and some hours lost in the cool, sun dappled summer afternoon on a long green lawn — lungo prato verde.
