A Tuscan Garden - Garden Photo of the Day

Federico Forquet Garden  - click here 

Federico Forquet has spent his long life in the fashion industry and in design of all kinds. Here is his garden in the Tuscan hills in Italy. It is a serene sanctuary.

Forquet says that creative fulfillment is a personal quest, not a public endeavor. “If you create an Empire you become an Emperor. But I prefer being a private and happy citizen of the world.”


  1. What a pretty sheltered walkway in the Tuscan countryside. I mentioned your new book in a post, which is not posted yet. I like to write them a little in advance.

    1. Thanks so much Terra! Let me know when you post it!

  2. So lovely with the bow- the perspective is so great!

    1. I agree....that is what makes it so compelling

  3. With all the back to school hectic frenzy, I would love to escape to a beautiful Tuscan garden such as this today.

    1. I agree, Chris! Serenity in the mind's eye.....
