ME AND MY HOME
I haven't published too many portraits of myself here in this blog but sometimes I wonder who the person is behind the blog I regularly read and so often I'm left only with the mystery and a smoldering (if not burning) curiosity. Blogging is a way to extend oneself to others, at best with a spirit of intimate generosity, and so here I am revealed minutes before leaving for a luncheon party at a friend's villa near Lucca in early May.
A portrait of our twin cypress trees which I took just a few days ago. When visitors come by I always tell them that these are some of the oldest Cupressus sempervirens they'll ever see, older than the oldest ones in the Boboli Gardens in Florence.
A portrait of a house, our house, just a few days ago.
A portrait of a garden. The "Old Garden" at Villa Massei.
A portrait of a guest house.
