Spring? Not quite…


Yes it gets cold and snowy in Tuscany. I was skiing at Abetone a couple of days ago (thoroughly recommendable I add). Headed home in a snow storm and was finally able to use the Land Rover for what it was built.

As the days start to get longer and warmer the locals start to get their allotments ready for early spring planting and the shops slowly fill with spring vegetables: my favourite being asparagus. Tennis training starts soon at Castiglion Fiorentino Tennis Club and I probably should get on my bike and ride a few hills. Somehow the former seems more tempting.
