For all of you who are still in the grip of winter cold and snowdrifts in northern Europe and USA, here is a bit of local color and Italian sunshine to warm up your day.
Hopefully these pictures taken around Vetralla and Viterbo in the past couple of days will convince you that spring is just around the corner.
Sunday market in Piazza della Rocca with colorful household goods, historic costumes and a crowd on the museum’s loggia.
The regular Tuesday market in Vetralla with locally grown produce.
The sunshine allows for 2 or even 3 loads of wash to dry during the day.
For those in the area here are the upcoming talks and tours I will be doing in the next couple of weeks.
Hope to see you at one of them!
