On the first warm clear spring day in what seems ages the valley folk took to their
spring work...making hay.
On the road to Madonna della Stelle - the church of Our Lady of the Stars - these neat bales were lined up in one very small field.
I love to see the valley come to life with seasonal chores.
The rhythm of the seasons...it is a way of life here.
The better part of my own day was spent also doing chores...double digging soil for the last batch of tomatoes to be planted this weekend. I hope the warm weather holds out...or my delicate little plants will risk becoming gelato...!
