Almond trees in blossom along the sides of a dirt road under a blue sky.
Road to Monte Fasolo 2

On Italian Sunday’s at four pm the world goes for a walk. Couples walk arm in arm, children, freshly scrubbed, are strapped into their strollers with the firm admonishment that fresh air is a good thing. Those of us who choose a quieter path are found out before lunch. Almond trees are now fully in blossom and stand, almost to attention as we amble past on the sandy road, drying now after the torrential rain. These trees, rather like their feline counterparts have become feral in a lot of the area . They can be found partnering with olive trees through out the hills of Euganei.
