My mother has often told me about how she used to ride her bicycle through fields that were full of cornflowers when she was a little girl.
And whenever she remembers those days, she always gets a little sad because you really don’t see them in the fields anymore.
The other day, when we went to pick some flowers in our vineyard in Cornuda and she saw some cornflowers, the smile on her face made me so happy. It was one of those smiles that come from deep down in your heart.
Nature is a truly wondrous thing and it’s such a pity that so many — too many — people don’t understand that.
