Sunday morning drive

Going for a Sunday Drive.

So many roads to follow.

And always the bluest of skies.

Cattle up to their ears in tall grasses.

Alfalfa stacked 2 tons high. 

Looking towards home.

Home again. 

Just in time

for a Champagne Brunch 

Have a great Sunday my dear friends. 



  1. Dear Gina,

    I looked at all five of your landscape photographs and thought, "Gee, that would make a great painting!" Your corner of the world is very inspiring, indeed!

    1. Dear Mark, What I love most about living in the country are the wide open spaces. In the city we lived in a canyon. A beautiful canyon and only 7 miles from downtown. But the views were limited. This new country spot suits me just fine.
      Oh, and you are welcome to paint any one of the scenes but you have to promise to show it to us.

    2. I might just surprise you someday.

    3. Nothing would suit us more. We would be delighted.

  2. Gorgeous...just magnificient your immense & magic countryside....& the tea at your fairytale country home I'd would never ever miss , dear Gina :) Thank you so very much for welcoming me back so lovingly, I truly appreciate it :) Gina

    ciaociao elvira

    1. Dear Elvira, You have no idea how happy I was to see you back. Your photographs are like no other. They are extraordinarily beautiful. and In addition, each tells a very moving story. So, welcome back. I look so forward to seeing your next post.
      By the way, we found a wonderful country inn for our September visit to Tuscany. It is located in the small town of Bibbona, "La Locanda di Villa Toscana. You have probably visited it and know of its charms.

    2. I am soooo thrilled to hear you will be sooooo close to me...just a 15 min. car drive; please call me as soon you arrive; I'd love to have coffee & a lovely chat with you :) I am looking so forward to it :)

      Thank you so very much for your sweet compliment about my photographs, Gina :)

      ciaociao a presto

    3. Dear Elvira, We will be there in early October. Thank you for the invite. We will call as soon as we arrive. How wonderful it will be to meet you. ox, Gina

  3. Dear Gina,
    such a wonderful post of the landscape which surrounds you. Then there is the great show of color in your garden and from the flower pots, with a Swallowtail Butterfly on the Dianthus................so very, very inviting.
    I see from the comments that Elvira, of the wonderful blog 'tuscanysmagicalplaces'' is back with a new post. Must visit immediately!
    Warmest greetings from a rainy morning in Texas, Sieglinde

    1. Dear Sieglinde, I know that you are happy to have a bit of rain to help cool things down. Our morning drive took us to heretofore undiscovered country lanes. And they were so near our house. We discovered new and old homesteads and wide open country with nothing but blue skies and white clouds.
      You must get acquainted with Elvira's blog. You will be stunned at her photographic skills. Going back to all of her posts will be a pleasure you will not soon forget.
