Back in Tuscany
Corzano e Paterno seems almost like a different world from the one I visited in March. The plants have burst into flower and the vegetable garden is an explosion of green and already producing courgettes and mange tout, having finished offering up a bumper crop of sweet baby broad beans. It is sunny with blue skies every day, with hot, lazy days and cooler, balmy nights. Last week New Zealand shearers came and gave all the Sardinian milk sheep a haircut.
