This is ‘my' la mia villa fiorentina. I am the proud custodian of the vegetable garden, and when I need to escape, it takes me twenty minutes to cycle to the Duomo. Life is sweet and I am pushing on with my project. 


The Medici Legacy


After four months in Sicily, I have (reluctantly) moved northwards. I am now living in the dreamy city of Florence! I have been here ten days thus far, and am living in a grand old villa with a big garden that runs alongside the Arno. The city is teetering on the edge of spring, so expect to see some beautiful garden photographs over the next few weeks.
