1976 - with Sofie, our first sheep

I’ve been writing for quite some time about our life on the land here in Umbria – and our rural friends, “givers of the greatest gifts”. I started sharing the memories long before I launched the blog. Our farm neighbors remain our dearest friends… over the years, each has given us treasured gifts. The gifts keep coming. I’ll keep writing about those gifts – and those people.

Here are some of the stories:
