Edward Lear wrote to Emily , the wife of Lord Alfred Tennyson during his second long stay in Corfu , from the winter of 1861 till the end of Spring of 1962 , about Corfu.
“The island is more beautiful than ever and I cannot imagine a more fairy-tale view or more perfect Greek landscape.Life here is completely different from the frenetic , annoying lightness of the city and I’m under the impression that here I’m rejuvenating a year every hour”.
Of a scene in Corfu Lear wrote, in February 1863, “Absolute glorious calm & clearness all day . . . the magnificent colour of these dells of orange & lemon trees, with the greyer olive & amethyst hills, are inimitable & wondrous”.
If you wish to rejuvenate yourself “a year every hour” , all you have to do is visit Prospero’s island , the queen of the Ionian sea , unique Corfu and spend your stay at Il Giardino Segreto di Prospero , hidden in the olive grove portraid by Edward Lear , simply thinking that everything happens for a reason «OMNIA CAUSA FIUNT».
