Enjoy the Watermill, inside and out!

The Watermill at Posara for painting, sculpting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language and yoga, holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.Here’ a rather good photo of a corner of The Watermill sitting room, taken by Dana Dodge, who was a guest on one of our recent knitting courses.

Notice the bust of Aphrodite on the chest of drawers? Well, she was kidnapped by painting tutor Maggie Renner Hellman and placed in the walled garden as a subject for painting. (She’s back in the siting room now!)

Aphrodite kidnapped. A bust of the goddess, normally in the Watermill sitting room, placed artistically in the walled garden.

Other denizens in the garden include lots of bees, who particularly like the artichoke flowers. Here’s Dana’s picture of one of them.
