Parts of the pergola that holds up the vines may need attention. Bushes always need trimming and the grass has to be kept short. We won't mention the slope to the land at one side of the house!
Hopefully there will be some sunshine and the fruit and other ornamental trees will be in blossom everywhere.

We'll go into our local hill towns to shop and browse around the weekly markets.
It'll be chilly in the evenings so we'll sit by the fire if we're not visiting family using our store of wood which fuels the wood burning stove and central heating. I have plenty of books to read and usually keep some piece of cross stitch work in my sewing basket to do. I can only manage simple embroidery and large cross stitch or tapestry work these days which I usually buy from specialist shops or from the market when we're over in Italy.
