Dreaming of Tuscany

We’re having our first grey, drippy autumn day.  It’s warm – close to 60F/15.5C but it’s dismal.  So naturally I’m dreaming of Tuscany, where I spent three weeks this summer.  I was working on a project that had me inside in front of the computer for many, many hours, but I still had plenty of time to get out into the Tuscan sun, walk the roads and byways, swim in the warm Mediterranean, cook with the incredible local ingredients, and live the Tuscan life.

I want to share images because everyone needs a taste of summer when the sun is hidden away!

    Ah, Italia….what wonderful pictures. Yes, we ,too ,need some Italian sunshine as Portland, OR has been drowning in heavy rain during the last four days. Fig tart looks so delicious. Thank you Barbara

      Tuscany has a corner on loveliness, I must say. It’s Mediterraneally breathtaking from nearly all vantages!

  2. I always miss the sun when it is gone….Tuscany fits the bill! What town was this? Looks lovely! I’ve been to Southern Italy quite a few times, I need to try Tuscany!
