It’s the 6th of May. The year is starting to pass and by looking at the garden I can see summer coming on strong. The tomatoes we planted on April 7th have doubled and some have tripled in size in just one month. Three artichokes rise above everything else, but the new weathervan secured to a sturdy 4by4. Weathervanes are normally perched on the highest peak of a roof, but I felt like we needed one at Fiore. There is something about the rooster spinning when the wind blows. Reminds me of  home.

Today was our slowest day in awhile. The rains kept everyone  away. I took a few minutes to take photographs. Two new books arrived via UPS, Milk and Honey by Justin Van Hoy and The Art of Sage Vaughn. I hope you have a chance to look at these two great art books. Sage did the cover art for Justin’s book.

Here are a few photographs from today. With the rain we always move around the outdoor furniture. We found a new spot for one of the community table. Jolyn told Anne that it reminds her of France. We like anything Italian or French so I thnk we’ll keep the table there.

Bread class is full for next week.

Got lots of bread for tomorrow. We hope to see you soon.

I am a bloody Irishman, but a real Italian Wannabe. I'll take Italy over Los Angeles and Dublin any day. Give me a plate of homemade pasta and an espresso with lots of crema and when I am through eating and I'll think I am in heavan. View all posts by Bill Disselhorst
