Bosco della Ragnaia

January 24, 2011

I went late December to catch the very early morning winter light at the ‘Bosco della Ragnaia’ in Toscana. It was the second time I was visiting this beautiful and very special garden. I spent the evening with its gardener, American artist Sheppard Craige, had a long chat with him about Louis XIV and the making of the garden of Versailles, while eating a Lasagna with white truffles, a speciality of the village. Sheppard is a former landscape painter, now designing a nine-hectare wood and field garden as his masterpiece, far away from any trends. If you go to Toscana, make a stop at the Bosco, this is such an incredible place.
