Red poppies and blue borage in the Watermill walled garden

It’s poppy time again in our part of Tuscany, as the vivid red flowers brighten the roadsides and the meadows. Our gardener Flavio Terenzoni has also encouraged the poppies to grow in the Watermill walled garden, especially in a lovely bed beside the plum tree, where they bloom beside the bright blue borage flowers, which not only attract myriads of buzzing bees but which we also use to decorate our salads.

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language, yoga holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.

A wonderful picture by Watermill guest Ron Ploeg

Come and enjoy the Watermill flowers yourselves: soon the roses will be in full bloom and the bignonia bursting forth in the courtyard.
