Early evening on a Watermill terrace. Time for an aperitivo!

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

As good as my promise, I collected my Hilary Mantell, put on the ice-making machine and spend a pleasant hour or so on our riverside terrace involved the machinations of Thomas Cromwell at the court of King Henry VIII. And then, as the shadows lengthened it was time for that ‘king of aperitivi’, a Negroni, invented by the Italian Count of that name. So you see, la Dolce Vita is alive and well and living in Italy!
