This is apple blossom time here in South Tirol (northern Italy).
It is the main apple growing region of Europe.

Taken on my short walk (only allowed out in a 200m radius from one's home, with a face mask, permit form and ID), in the nearby apple orchard.
Tschigat (2999m) in background, which I hope to go up this summer - when we are hopefully allowed out again!

This is Brunnenburg Castle, which lies above us, this morning (in South Tirol). As seen from our kitchen window - looking north.

Brunnenburg is a 13th-century castle in the province of South Tyrol, in northern Italy.
Schloss Brunnenburg is situated above the city of Merano, on the outskirts of the municipality of Tirol. Originally built circa 1250, the castle was completely restored and updated in the mid-20th century by Boris de Rachewiltz, an Egyptologist, and his wife Mary, daughter of the poet Ezra Pound and violinist Olga Rudge, who have made it their home. Surrounding the castle is the family's vineyard.
Pound stayed with his daughter and her family at the castle in 1958 after he returned from the United States. He wrote the last 6 of his 116 "cantos" of The Cantos.  Wikipedia)

This is Schloss Tirol, as seen this morning from our kitchen window. It lies slightly above the Brunnenburg (see photo above).

We had fresh snow higher up on the hills down to 2000m yesterday and last night.

The castle hill has been inhabited since ancient times. Several artifacts and one field of graves from the early Middle Ages have been identified. Archeologists have excavated a church with three apses dating from the early Christian period.
The first castle was built before 1100. The second construction phase including the keep dates to 1139/40. A third phase of construction took place in the second half of the 13th century under Count Meinhard II of Gorizia-Tyrol. In 1347 Meinhard's granddaughter Countess Margaret of Tyrol was besieged here by the forces of the Luxembourg king Charles IV. The castle remained the seat of Tyrol's sovereigns until 1420, when the Habsburg archduke Frederick IV moved the administrative seat to Innsbruck north of the Brenner Pass.
In modern times parts of the castle fell into the so-called "Köstengraben", a steep gorge. It was even sold in order to be used as a quarry. In the 19th century the castle was restored; the keep was rebuilt in 1904.
Regarding art history, the frescos of the castle's chapel are of special interest as well as two Romanesque portals with opulent marble sculptures showing legendary creatures, religious themes, and geometric ornaments.
The castle has served as the site of a museum since the early 1980s. Since 2003, Tyrol Castle houses the South Tyrolean Museum of History. Next to the castle there is a falconry with a nursing ward for birds of prey.  (Source: Wikipedia)
