Takumi potting up plants in the fern area, Galeazza
It’s going to take weeks, but we’re moving everything we can; all the plants from areas that are safe from the danger zones where things could fall if there were another quake. It feels good to see them ready to move! We’re normally using bigger pots than necessary so they can hang out in them for a long time - many months, even a year or more.
Today my friend Andrew Schukin took some pictures of the earthquake damage at the Castle of Galeazza. Two years ago he was at the castle for one week with his team from Minsk to take photos for an underwear and swimsuit company’s 2011 catalogue and calendar…
some of his photos (not for the company, but for himself):
It didn’t help that the roof in this area of the castle was already half collapsed - but this series of earthquakes brought down large sections of walls, and now about 30% of the kitchen garden is under bricks and rubble.
After the Earthquakes: Ruins of the Castle of Galeazza, Crevalcore, (Bologna)
More of the Castle of Galeazza came down today after a violent quake at 9 am was followed by hours of strong aftershocks. The earthquake was felt all over northern Italy, even as far north as Austria and south, in Tuscany…
According to the TG4 news, 17 people have died and 10 are missing. Over 8,000 people are now homeless.
