Summer here in Carmine is in full swing just as Enid Blyton would have liked. The gardens and the children are rampant and the vacationing adults are laid back. There's a homemade water-wheel under a waterfall, and a hot dog in the old lavatoio. There are picnics and rowing boats and sailing boats and blow-up rubber boats. And hydrangea blooming everywhere.
Hydrangea, Carmine Superiore.
