Garden details from Villa Medici a Fiesole

Sometimes my posts are just too long, so I save a bit for later.  I’ve posted twice recently about the palazzo and the grounds of the Villa Medici a Fiesole.

The bits I’ve saved from this garden are

  1. A closer look at a terracotta pot, which is adorned with your own coat-of-arms, at  if you are a Medici

 

2. How to mend a valuable terracotta pot

3.  How to make a broom.  Yes, I know we buy ours, but have you ever thought about how they made brooms in the olden days?  Well, I’m about to show you!
