Sunflower Moodboard

I love sunflowers, they are such happy warm flowers, that represent summer like no other flower does. they match perfectly with gerbera daysies and anything lime-green. I know we’re not in summer right now, but i really needed a ray of sunshine on this gloomy day.

A Medieval Tuscan Castle

There are quite a few castles in Tuscany, we always walk into something new. We did see this castle from a distance on one of the hills and since we needed to be in the area we decided to take a look. Glad we did because it is seriously beautiful!

The courtyard is quite big, but is feels very welcoming.

Contemporary art and cute details give this castle a very personal twist.

Looking out from the castle tower you can see all of Tuscany with towns like San Gimignano, Barberino val d’Elsa and Certaldo

In front of the castle there is a 200 year old tree under which ceremonies can be held, can you imagine hanging a thousand lanterns there?

A little further there is a small medieval chapel where religious wedding ceremonies are held.
