I slept until 10am today. After breakfast, Nicole and I headed to the garden center. I told Juergen I wanted to buy plants...that was my top goal. So I did. I bought mostly cactus and succulents. I want a collection to put in front of our house in terracotta pots. I also bought one grape, a passion flower, and different vegetables. Nicole was there to keep me from buying the whole store out. I know it will be difficult to get these plants home. It will be hard to pack them. But it was at the top of my list, and I did buy plants. Today they are putting the wine into bottles here at the Villa. This is a working farm with 500 Acres of wheat, grapes and forest. They rent out the Villa to guests, but the farm is the main business. So perhaps we will get to watch them put the wine into bottles, and we will need to find room for a case or 2 of wine in the car? We also have friends from Heidelberg coming by to spend the afternoon with us. They are also in Tuscany on vacation. It will be wonderful to share the afternoon with friends!
