This is the path where we walked in the morning in a little town right outside of Siena. The graveled road is adjacent to the tallest cypress trees I’ve ever seen. Their points seem to almost pierce the bright sky on this hot afternoon in Tuscany.
Olive trees and fig trees. Artichoke flowers and grape vines-I’m in awe over what is growing around us thinking we could move here, couldn’t we?
The kids just finished picking the last of the susine from the tree. Sweet as honey Italian plums. I think how amazing they would be in a little cake. Our last day in Tuscany is today.
My posts from Italy were brief. I fervently write what I can trying to capture some moments for myself and for my friends that read me. Lavender surrounds me. I breathe in its beautiful scent over and over again hoping to imprint this moment in my mind for an eternity. The kids are running around a field with their lovely new friends; children from Scandinavia. They can barely understand each other but have been playing for hours. A magical day in a place I dream of moving to one day. Sadness envelopes us the last day as we say good-bye to our new friends.
The sunflowers seem to be waving at us as we zoom by them.
Arrivederci. Until we meet again.
