Just over a year ago we arrived in Italy. Almost everyday since I have walked around the local orchard with my dog. At first glance it is an unkempt place but as the year has gone by I have seen the most amazing fruits, and the farmers work in a wonderful yearly routine - one I suspect that has been going on for generations. Now is the time for pumpkins in the fields near the fruit trees. The field is full of pumpkins of every size, shape and colour you could imagine. Beautiful.
