Happy International Women’s Day – A Mimosa for all Women

March 8th is International Women’s Day, or Festa della Donna. I have written about the sad events that lead to International Women’s Day. In Italy most men will present their female acquaintances and colleagues with a branch of yellow flowers from called Mimosa. So here, with best wishes, is my electronic Mimosa!

Hi David, You wrote a comment about the Fattoria Giusi that produces organic veggies, etc. and I tried googling them to no avail. I wonder if you know any way of contacting them? Thanks!
