At the Arte Studio Ginestrelle, Mount Subasio, Assisi

All pictures are today, dear Readers.

Art residency at Arte Studio Ginestrelle in Assisi, Mount Subasio, Umbria, Italy. Our first few days!

Next post: Umbrian florae with dye potential! The “ginestrelle” is Broom or Spartium junceum. A few late, late yellow blossoms on the tip-top of stalk here and there. Fruits from the gardens here and nearby.

    I would have serious problems working for the first few days ,I would be too busy enjoying the view and the feel of the place.
    Lucky who ever is there and try to get some work done.
