This afternoons view across the new olive trees towards Todi

Have been in the fields this afternoon looking at the new olive and oak trees we planted earlier this year. With all the rain they had in March they have been well and truly watered in. Now, with the temperatures rocketing they are beginning to look heat stressed. I'll need to find a way of getting a hose pipe from the cistern into the fields so that they can be watered through the summer. Much to their joint chagrin the boyz haven't been allowed out with me today. When we came back from Rome we found a very large dead viper by the side of the pool. Venomous snake bites are something I'd rather not add to my list of experiences as a dog owner and as a result the long grass where the snakes are breeding is out of bounds.
