I know I go on about Lucca and how gorgeous it is, but just have a look at this view of the wall.
We went to Lucca on the weekend for Verdemura the garden show held each year on the wall surrounding the town. You can see the stands along the top of the wall.
It was a gorgeous sunny day when we started out, but dark clouds gathered and we have to take shelter from heavy rain a couple of times.
Not to be deterred, we pressed on with our trolleys and gathered up a few more things for the garden at Casa Debbio.
We bought peonies, lilac, lavender, agapanthus, hydrangeas, irises, poppies and a gorgeous little daphne that smells heavenly.
We have been busy planting and weeding at Casa Debbio. The peonies I planted last year are poking through the soil, my weeping cherry is beginning to bloom and all the fruit trees are about to bud. I will show you what’s happening soon.
