May 1st is coming soon. A Labour Day holiday in Italy. And we’re hoping it will be Festa dei Fiori here as it always used to be before the earthquakes. Flowers everywhere and Sarnano looking stunning. But the weather here is wildly unpredictable at this time of year. A couple of years back there was a sudden hailstorm of biblical proportions, and all was washed out. Thunder, lightning and hailstones like little marbles. Then the following day it was 25 degrees again. That’s spring in Le Marche for you.
