The Garden in Italy

Me with my partner Tobias Abse outside our house in Nugola, near Livorno, Tuscany.
This isn't a particularly good view of the wisteria.....look at this, though! There are cascades of it during the spring and summer, and it smells gorgeous!

We have a lovely old fig tree, from which I collected a lot of fruit in the summer....gave most of it away to friends, though!

One of the most beautiful parts of the garden is the rosemary hedge planted by my mother-in-law about twenty years ago. When you arrive at the house, there is such a wonderful scent of rosemary! It has tiny blue flowers in the spring.
