Here are just a few of the pictures of the gardens and flowers that I can't stop snapping. This place is amazing. Flowers are everywhere and the air smells like them. I wish I could record the smell somehow!
I tried to shoot the hummingbird moth that was flitting around this lavender but he was never still! Cool little guy!
Chef Claudio grows grapes and olives. He presses his own olive oil.
When you see paintings of Tuscany, this is the view.
Guess who has been in the garden? Wild boars!
Lemon verbena, lavender (is there anything that smells better than those?), and yummy wild raspberries:
