There is a beautiful park near my house, the Villa Borghese gardens. In 1605, cardinal Scipione Borghese started transforming a vineyard into this masterpiece we still enjoy today. This beautiful holm oak is on what used to be the Pincian Hill, now called the Pincio, one of the many areas of the park. I often sit by its base to read, and sketch. It never ceases to inspire me, I never tire of looking at it.
