Civita, Italy - Door
For all it's early promise, our rain fizzled out yesterday with a few sprinkles ... and so again, dust and drought seem to be in the picture. I came home as well, to an infestation of blister beetles that had totally consumed my 2 1/2 foot clematis and were moving toward my just-producing tomatoes -- sigh ...
I returned to a bit more happier moments -- Italy! LOL This was one of the doorways in Civita furnished with flowers and small mats of grass in the stone walks. The colors and memories cheered me as I plotted 'war' on those ravenous insects ... and figured I had more 'trips' to plan to the farmers market!
Looks like I'll be spending a good amount of time in the garden today - watering and warring ....
Good thing I've still got more of Italy to paint and dream with ...! LOL
Have a great day!
