Autumn begins at Ponte a Serraglio

I am back in Ponte a Serraglio, our little bit of Bagni di Lucca for a while. The weather is heavenly. The mornings and evenings are deliciously cool and the days are warm and sunny.

The view from my balcony is a constant source of delight.

Autumn in Ponte a Serraglio

Signs of autumn are beginning to appear.
