Tuscan Flora | 24.6.22

We took a week’s holiday in the hills between Arezzo and Perugia recently; the borderlands between Tuscany and Umbria. We were staying relatively high above sea level – with a somewhat tortuous journey to get too and from the house that we had rented via dust roads with endless hairpin bends. The house was surrounded by woodland that was a mix of holm oak, beech and pine and home to wild boars, foxes, deer and porcupine.

On our daily walks we saw a whole host of wildflowers cultivars of which are common garden plants in the UK: campanula, scabious, dianthus, broom and more.
