Glittering, Glowing, Glorious, Golden Umbria

Glittering, Glowing, Glorious, Golden Umbria in the Summer

Umbria, the green heart of Italy, turns to GOLD in the summer.  The graceful waves of verdant wheat fields that seemingly just yesterday danced lightheartedly in the spring breezes, have become the the richest, most GLORIOUS GOLD.  The green of the lush vineyards, majestic oaks and magnificent olive trees are dotted with GLITTERING GOLD!
