Some farmhouse, Diederick!

The light here is totally delightful. What crop do you think this is that is ready to be ploughed back in? It is very straight lines with maybe a little bit of a swampy bit. It is just stalks left isn't it? That is what they do with wheat here. This field (oops, nearly said paddock) reminds me of the lavender farms in Provence.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

These are the "left-overs" of a rice-field, Julie. Italy cultivates its own rice. Happy New year!!

Grazie mille, Ferreira-Pinto, and Happy New year to you too!!

That's a wonderful blue-grey sky against all those warmer tones of the farmhouse and fields. Just beautiful. (Oh - I'd love to see inside the private chapel!)
