Paper Hearts – For the day that’s in it

Walking around Loreto Aprutino one year ago, today I spotted a door covered in paper hearts.

I think school children pinned them there as part of St Valentine celebrations.

It wasn’t long after midday and although the sun was shining, the town, and most of Abruzzo was covered in snow.

I wonder if a new set of  hearts are there today.
