a good read

I am currently rereading “Under the Tuscan Sun” by Frances Mayes. I reccommend it to everyone, particularly at this time of year when the weather has cooled somewhat. She writes of her experiences in buying a Tuscan farmhouse, in the nineties I think. She really captures the heat, life and landscape as well as the day to day work of rennovating a house and garden in Italy. At the moment I particularly feel her descriptions of cleaning terraces of ivy. Earlier in the year it was the scorpion episodes!
