A Walk on the Wild Flower Side

It is no wonder May attracts the photographers and artists to the Val d'Orcia. Color is exploding all around us. You cannot look in any direction without seeing bursts of red, yellow, and several shades of purple.

This morning I took a walk around the outskirts of town and here are just some of my views:

Red Poppies, Yellow Aster, Wild Irises and several types of wild peas, wisteria and lilacs. Thank goodness we have our own botonist on staff. Joel's Wife Barbara can tell you the latin and generic name for just about every species we came across. All I know is that they are most beautiful!
