Sunshine!

The sunburst of a Smooth Goldenfleece - epitomises summer

The sunburst of a Smooth Goldenfleece epitomises summer

At long last – summer!

If winter is Italy’s best kept secret, summer is Italy’s fixture.

It’s not like Britain where you have one glorious day and then it rains and you say: “I think that was summer.”

Here you wake day after day to hot sun, cool shade, bright flowers and (in our case) a brilliant aquamarine swimming pool!

The downside is insects, but being half way up a mountain they don’t bother us a great deal.

Some insects are a joy, of course: butterflies, potter wasps, crickets, fireflies.

The fireflies appear when we’re having supper outside after dark – tiny pulsing lights that could be sparks from a fire, or bits of tinsel in a snowstorm globe.

They make a display for our enjoyment but at the same time they remind us that the night belongs more to the wild creatures than to us.
