The little things in life

I’m on the bus to Rome. Yes! I actually do public transport. Well it is so convenient the bus leaves the Bellaugello Gay Guest House road end at 06.00 and with a coffee stop enroute gets you to Rome by 9am, and to my utter amazement the bus has free wifi how advanced is that!!

It’s a beautiful day and a beautiful journey through the Umbrian countryside into Lazio and on into Rome
The bus also continues to Fiumincino airport.
A return bus leaves Rome at 16.00, and brings you back to the road end at Valdichiascio for Bellaugello. A real relaxing way to get for a day trip to the eternal city and be connected too!

The artichoke is finally bursting into flower and what a spectacular show in the sun-kissed garden at Bellaugello Gay Guest House in Umbria.

There were only five artichokes, I felt it would be fun to see them flower, so they were left to grow and today the first opened to reveal its glorious colours and wonderous intricate design.

Well worth the wait and not having been eaten.

This evening we are picking our first zucchini from my vegetable patch along the swimming pool path. A sun kissed supper.

Unbelievable!
