A nature inspired afternoon in Trecastagni

Memories from a relaxing afternoon at our friend's house in Trecastagni, a lovely spot at the foot of Mt. Etna. 

The garden invited lots of exploration. Each tree had a story to tell, as did the neat patches of recently planted cold season veggies found in every corner of this abundant garden. 

The dangling, edible temptations were too much for a 5 year old to resist.  Sweet and sour pomegranates were by far the favorite. Grapes were a close second.

There was so much to gather on our nature walk.

The best finds were used to make plaster of paris impressions. We had just enough plaster for each kid to take two home. It would be fun to paint them, but still haven't done that yet.
