Sunshine – but still green

The sun continues to shine here in Umbria as it has done for the past month.  Despite the lack of rain the garden and surrounding countryside at Bellaugello Gay Guest House near Gubbio is looking lush and verdant.  We are lucky to have our own spring, which up till now is still pouring forth cool clear water, enough to keep the garden maintained.

I am just back from the vivaio with a car load of summer bedding plants which I will spend the afternoon planting into the pots and putting on the various terraces, as tomorrow we are all off to join in the annual celebration of the ‘Festa dei Ceri’ or ‘race of the candles’ in Gubbio.  More about that and some photos on tomorrow’s post!
