With spring now upon us I will begin planting the terrace below Casa Debbio very soon. I am slowly gathering plants as they appear in the nurseries. I found a fabulous pomegranate which is too big to fit in my car…I’ll find a way of getting it to the house.
The terrace is quite large and I would like some large pots, or perhaps a statue or 2 to place amongst the plants. With this in mind, I went to one of my favourite shops in Forte dei Marmi…although I don’t think the word shop describes this place well enough.
This is Il Giaggiolo.
It is an enormous area filled with fabulous things collected from old houses and gardens. I could easily load a truck with things for Casa Debbio.
These old tiles would be great…somewhere.
I especially love these pots…they are very big and very expensive.
I think this would look great in my garden.
They have an indoor area full of good things too.
This is Emilio, the owner. He would have been happy to load a truck for me. In fact, he offered to do just that.
I wouldn’t mind the gates as well.
