gone garden gone

broken hand featuredWhat happens when you can’t maintain a garden.  Villa Fidelia is a garden outside of Spello, Italy, where the boxwood hedges, limestone statues, lemon trees planted in terra cotta pots have been left to nature.  One over-worked gardener is responsible for watering, pruning, mowing and weeding. It’s too much. For me, this garden might be more beautiful neglected, than cared for.
