Last night in Carisio: azaleas, mountains and paddy fields

We stayed at the Hotel Paladini in Carisio in the Piedmont region of Italy. We were treated to beautiful views while walking the dogs, and azaleas in full bloom.

We woke to splendid views of mountains behind the paddy fields — it's hard to believe how much rice is grown in Italy

  1. I love azaleas! Those cows are pretty awesome too. But the bestest part was that huge mud puddle…. now wouldn’t THAT be fun to play in!

  2. Speaking of Calendars, you guys could totally do that for charity ???? just a thought. I think you’d have a hit! Especially with sweet sweet Alex on it. You have soooo many wonderful animal photo’s you could probably use dozens on each month. I’d buy some…..Xmas gifts?

    • We have toyed with the idea of producing one for charity. Most have their own but guess we could do one and split the proceeds with the charities we work with. We’ll think on…

  3. I’d like to enlist your services, please. How much to crate the cow and courier it to Tuscumbia, Alabama? 😉

    I am only half joking about this… Oh, wait, it gives me an awesome idea for the Mountain Farmlet! Stay tuned! 😀
