Balmy evening at Bellaugello

Following a day of intense heat, last night was one of those beautiful balmy evenings, the warm light breeze wafting the heady scent of lavender across the garden,  an excuse for dinner on the terrace at Bellaugello Gay Guesthouse in the delightful Umbrian countryside.

Unusually for us the majority of the guys were from the UK and talk was very much of British things including the recent Jubilee celebrations and of course the weather.  I learnt that next week it is forecast to get even hotter here in Umbria, some are even talking of 45˚c an anti-cyclone called ‘the devil’……

But last night it was stunningly pleasant, the conversation such fun, great wines, so much so that the full moon had to peek round the house just to see what all the merriment was about before coming into full view and brightly lighting the sky
