The Secret Garden of Umbria

I have a secret place….

And this place has a secret garden….

I don’t remember how I found it….

I think I was driving around with friends….

I go there to pick black figs…

I play the magic chimes with a spoon….

I sit in the stone chair….

I listen to the wind blow through the wooden pipe…

I admire the strange statues…

I breathe in the perfume of the mentuccia….

I won’t tell you where it is…

Just… that it’s somewhere in Umbria….
