Our new hydrangeas will soon be as beautiful as brides!

Spring has been a little late in Posara this year and we have been hanging fire putting up our window boxes and our large flower pots in the Watermill courtyard. Our talented gardener, Flavio Terenzoni has begun his work, however, and we are confident there’s be plenty of colour for our first course next week. Flavio has just planted up four big terracotta pots of hydrangeas beside the new French windows of the Vasari Suite.

They don’t look much at the moment, as you can see from the picture above. But soon they’ll be as beautifal as brides. At least thats what it says on the packet!

Thoughts of hydrangeas were prompted by the fine picture by our Australian cobber and great painting tutor Terry Jarvis, who painted this wonderful watercolour of hydrangeas at the Watermill on a previous visit.Painting by Terry Jarvis, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.That lot look more bridely blushing, but you can come and see the other resplendent white brides on Terry’s course with us this Summer.  We’ve still a few places left.
