Over the River and Through the Woods (really!)
Partial view of the orchard and entrance to the boschetto (little forest) behind my Grandmother's house. The river is just beside the property - actually there are two: the Vipacco and the Isonzo. Our nephew Felipe showing off freshly picked walnuts and playing photographer. Our nephew Thiago and his father Martin, with a view of the house in the background. Proudly displaying the massive basket of figs I picked. I managed to eat all of these in about 4 days! Portrait of the Vida Difícil. My sister-in-law Andrea searching for hazelnuts. Somehow I managed to convince Thiago that it wasn't, in fact, a good idea to take the lawnmower for a spin. Rico examining the engine of the 1938 Fiat my Grammy gave to us grandkids to restore. Martin checks out the convertible top. Everything in the car is in remarkably good condition. Words fail me to describe how much my Grammy likes Rico. Seriously! The Fiat is a one-family car. My great-great-grandmother was the original owner, and we still have the car papers in her name. Quite the legacy, né?
