I’m still at my home in Dallas. In about two weeks I’ll return to this Italian farm house that sits within an undulating valley surrounded by hills and distant mountains. I’m so looking forward to experiencing another spring there, as well joining my dear sweet husband Fred. He’s busily working on the championship course surrounding this house. Sadly the old road depicted in this shot will soon be covered with dirt. I captured this view last spring.

    I kind of miss the weeds in the pavers after seeing this shot. it looks a bit bare now. Please bring some dry weather with you. Or an ark. But the trees are starting to bloom and it is getting warmer, anyway. All we need is some sun.
