Courtyard at La Romita, Umbria, Italy 2009

I'm participating in a month of journal writing and watercolor.  This is one of this month's entries.  The prompt was "Where would I have liked to spend more time?"

When I think back about a place I had to leave too soon, it would have been the courtyard at La Romita, Umbria, Italy, 2009.
There was something mighty special about that flowered courtyard -- flowers, pots, benches, chairs,fountains, brick and grilled beautiful windows and inviting doors, olive groves behind it, welcoming aromas from the kitchen, the sound of baa-ing lambs and sheep on the farm behind the courtyard, sunlight and shade, a sense of peace. Such beauty -- blue hills behind tawny-hued buildings, birds butterflies -- an oasis - a slice of heaven.
