A summer evening at Corte Eremo, Photo by Myrice Tansini.

It’s so difficult to capture the atmosphere of a great summer evening here, but Myrice has managed!

Filippo and Rox from Vivaio Millefoglie. I love these people! :)

Thank you so much for your sweet company, the beautiful plants, and all of your help in the garden!

Thank you Nancy J. Ondra and Missa Marmalstein for the seeds. I’ve tried many times, and finally got three to grow.
