After the rain, wind and even a few snow flurries Umbria lives up
to its being called,"The Green Heart of Italy". To any doubters, there is evidence of
the snow on the mountains in the distance!
Spring is when the olive trees are pruned. Often the branches that
have been pruned and pied up and burnt creating a hazy atmosphere,
but on this day the air is perfectly clear.
The emerald green crop in the foreground is wheat .....
for pasta no doubt!
Back in Panicale the blue of the sky tops the town. Strong
shadows are painted by the April sun. The warmth from the sun
bringing the Wisteria into bloom.
Loving the Umbrian spring!!!
