The colors of the Piemonte

September 25, 2009

Red-red geraniums and roses.

A truckload of deep purple grapes, sweet and juicy.

Bitter-green cicoria and dandelion, growing wild.

A corn-fed scrambled egg, full-bodied, hormone-free, in bright yellow.

Pink juice from melons and red currants, whirled together, cool and refreshing.

The yellow-pink flesh of ripe plums against thick, sweet vanilla yogurt.

Dark coffee, strong and rich.

A pure white pitcher of hot milk.

The pale green of small, hand-thrown coffee cups.

Layers of pinks and yellows like water color stains on walls.
