Please tell me it's official...

That spring has finally arrived?!  Today we woke to beautiful, blue skies and the sun rising above La Rocchetta.  What a glorious feeling to walk outside into the sunshine!  Even the plants seem to have awaken...

Hard to believe that in two months this entire pergola will be covered and budding with fragolina grapes.

How bout them orchids!
Ok, there is more rain in the forecast, but only for a day or so.  Then "they say" things will be taking a turn for the better.  I know, I'm obsessed, but this has been a long winter.  Pray to the sun gods!

Love that pergola and the view! I have a feeling that Spring has really sprung now so have a great week.

A few days ago it was the most beautiful day we'd had all year. Today it is cool and rainy again.

What about up there?

Spring seems to be creeping in finally! Everything is in bloom and smells fresh. It's supposed to stay nice, but we'll see...
