Spring has arrived at Casa Debbio

A relatively warm March in our area has meant that spring has arrived early this year at Casa Debbio.

We have daffodils popping up everywhere.

A pink helibore is thriving under a cherry tree.

Several tree peonies have buds already and most of my herbaceous peonies are poking through the soil.

Our gorgeous weeping cherry started blooming last week and this week is full of blossoms and the bees are loving it.

We have bought a couple more…we have to keep our bees happy.

Wild goats must have been going elsewhere for breakfast this year. We have camellias!

Filippo has done a wonderful job over the winter. Everything is neat and tidy and ready for spring growth. These scenes will look completely different in a couple of weeks.

He has also cleared some more acacia to allow a sambucca tree to grow. We now have another terrace where we can plant fruit trees. This will begin soon.

Please don’t forget to tell all your friends about our Italian mountain house available for rent this spring and summer.

  1. I’m sooooo envious. We just had our school March break and we headed up to our cabin in northern Ontario, where there were four feet of snow. It was beautiful and cozy, but I’m ready for Pescaglia now!
