The large pink peppercorn tree appears in the distance, it’s branches canopying the driveway to the villa. It’s no use, the brakes have failed. After missing ancient olive and fig trees, rose bushes and the freesias, you crash right into the pepper tree. The scent of charred berries hangs in the air. Welcome home.
