Tuscany, When the Rosemary's in Flower
Back to our drive through Tuscany. One of the loveliest things we saw that weekend was enormous rosemary bushes (3 -4 feet high) covered in tiny purple flowers. What I would have given for a leg of lamb to roast with all that rosemary abundance!
On our way through Chianti wine country, we ran into a big, scary pack of Vespa bikers. Doesn't this display just strike fear into your hearts? I'm imagining these guys parked all together in Sturgis, South Dakota just scaring the pants off of everybody else.
A tour of Tuscany is incomplete without an image of the gorgeous rolling hills where the grapes grow. Right now, the fields are laden with empty grape-vine trunks, no leaves or fruit to speak of yet. I'd love to be here in summer when this is all green and in fall when they harvest. Guess I'll just have to come back!
