The weather has been perfect, sunshine, hot sunshine, Bellaugello looking fabulous, the garden fragrant, bountiful lavender just about to burst into bloom, zucchini in the orto garily showing bright delicate flowers, as the bard said we have “bound up yon dangling apricots” and the roses are abundant and generously flowering.
