That's also how I imagine Tuscany would be like.

Kate said...

Dreams of Tuscany is not a laughing matter; this one looks like a dream come true!

Sharon Creech said...

Ahhh, very Tuscany-ish. Thank you for taking me there this morning, brattcat.

I love a tiled roof and the color yellow. What an endearing shot. MB

Stumbled across your blog by way of Small City Scenes in Washington state.

I was scrolling through your recent posts and your April 2 photo nearly knocked me out of my chair! That is the one you took in Boston from the trolley.

A person named Amin said it best: "I think I have not seen before so interesting photo."

Take care.

Not ever having been to Tuscany (or to Vermont for that matter), I cannot comment further on your comparison which many folks seem to think was quite astute of you...therefore, I shall simply say it is a delightful photo of a delightful place in your delightful state and if it is similar to Tuscany, well, good for Tuscany!

Meanwhile, try not to worry about all of this and have a nice day. Okay?

With its yellow walls and red tile roof of course it would remind you of Tuscany. I have never been to Tuscany but if it is as lovely as this photo I would very much like to go there.

Anything that makes us think of Tuscany is very welcome! :-) Lovely sight!

Rob and Mandy said...

Nice!

Magpie said...

What a wonderful shot...the color is beautiful. If is doesn't look like Tuscany, I'm sad for Tuscany!

I think you should complete the Tuscan experience by opening a bottle of Chianti, cooking some pasta, maybe a side of garlic spinach, and finish with some gelato.

Sharon said...

And..I can see why. Isn't it interesting how certain architecture and landscapes can whisk you away to other places and times?

Just like a chocolate box! ... Or should that be cioccolato?

Bob Crowe said...

Italian friend? What about your American friends? There ain't an olive in sight.

Marie-Noyale said...

I am French,so I am not laughing ;~))
I can easily see why you are dreaming...

Serge Cornillet said...

I've been there and Toscany have a lot of beautiful landscapes. Nice idea, why not!

The beauty of your shot is in perfect tune with the architecture of this great house!

I am not laughing at all: I hereby declare that you are perfectly right.
