After a morning of thick, cool, fog rolling down the Tuscan hills at Villa Cetinale, the afternoon was blessed with sunshine that cleared the sky and warmed the landscape around us. In the midst of olive groves, boxwood gardens, and lemon trees, Giada and Rick posed for the wedding ceremony portion of the Jose Villa workshop. The path and interior of the historic chapel was lit with flickering candles, and its weathered, old wooden doors were left slightly ajar to gesture us to come in and see more. The moments felt serene and momentous.

One of my favorite ways to observe the seasons is visiting flower fields and gardens: when lilac hedges, rows of peonies, or sunflowers pop up for their time to shine, I feel joyful and a bit more connected to nature. And nothing makes me notice that spring has come more than tulips. My favorite at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival were these wonderful peach and coral lovelies! An early morning walk through the fields when the air is still a bit crisp and hardly anyone else is around is spectacular.
