Meanwhile my head is in planning my garden mode and I've been looking at new websites as well as the reliable old (note that is a picture of a genuine broken tulip, illegal to sell or grow in Holland!). Looking up tulips I found this lovely website with lots of original tulip art. Nice!
In other news I used my lunch break today to go to an Italian wine show behind Westminster Abbey. We'll see how the rest of the afternoon goes. At a minimum I should probably avoid typing based on how long it took me to get these last few sentences out. On the other hand, Benanti Wines! And Cantine Russo who did the delicious Etna Rosso Rampanta I got in the Catania airport! Ah, heaven ... it's a bottle of Mot Pit Metodo Classico Spumante Brut Rose (Nerello Mascalese) from Cantine Russo, nice and cold. Somebody buy me one to celebrate my citizenship with (in January).
