R is for La Ragnaia

Una ragnaia is a small wood for trapping birds – no doubt as a dinner-party delicacy.  Craig Sheppard’s magical garden La Ragnaia in San Givanni d’Asso is anything but a bird-trapping domain.  He gardens carefully, in harmony with nature and and the sprites and goods in his wood and field.

    Love the sculpture, I could see that in my woodland!

    This is a wonderful garden, I agree, full of magical places enhanced by the sculptures by Shepperd’s late wife. A place to return to — as I will be doing in May.
