You want seasons? I’ll give you three; my first summer here, flowers in full bloom, in June. Last year’s gothic fog and today’s rain.

When I chose to settle down I wanted 4 seasons yet Piemonte came with so many of ’em. There’s a time to plant vegetables, pick the grapes, cut back the vines, stack the wood, cut back the roses, hunt for truffle, fertilize the lawn, switch from our well to city water, trim the hortensia to make room for the new – you get the idea.

And today, finally, after 2 months of cool, dry weather; it rained. Being from Seattle I feel relieved. Too much sun flattens me out, light rain lifts the spirits, relaxes me and loosens the mind.

So for your seasonal entertainment, cuz Covid is messing with our sense of time, here’s my first summer in Piemonte in ’15, one of my first little vids…

Last year’s fog and…

today’s rain.
