Cortona in Bloom

With town and countryside a riot of colour, we couldn’t help but take a series of photos for our blog...

It’s that time of year again! Splashes of vibrant colour everywhere: Red poppies and wild flowers adorn the olive groves and hillsides.
The wisteria and wild rose bushes are in full flower. Everything is busy and buzzing: in the countryside the constant hum of bees, insects, tractors and mowers.  In the town, the chatter of spring voices, the clatter and clash of cups and saucers and the hiss of espresso machines pumping steam at full capacity.
How wonderful to be a first-time visitor to Cortona at this time of year! 
From afar an imposing citadel perched on her hillside to a backdrop of blue sky.
Close to, a thriving town centre - rich in art and history - with secluded alley ways, backstreets and quiet squares, yet to discover.
Places where the past gently blends with the present, where birds sing and nest, where the delicate perfume of the flowering perennials infiltrate the senses. Sheltered spots you might leave only with reluctance, hoping - maybe already planning - to return in the near future.
