"Tuscany in the Spring"
One of my favorite times to visit Italy is in the Spring. It seems that all the colors have been waiting all winter to come out and they present themselves in bright, bold rich hues.

Nothing makes me stop and take note more than a field of poppies in full bloom. It makes for a challenging trip when we have to stop the car every couple of kilometers to take photos of the next field!
This scene is one of my favorites and takes me immediately back to our last trip through the Tuscan countryside. All I need is a bowl of pasta and a glass of Chianti and the experience is complete!
