>Suddenly, it’s winter


The north wind was blowing today, dry and cold, fraying the clouds as they came down from the mountains. It really felt like December.

The air was clear and from the hill near the gardens we could see the sun highlighting the edges of the roof tiles on the houses in the village.

I’ve found a photo of our first olive tree when we planted it in 2004. It’s much bigger now, even after its recent pruning.

  1. >But at least you got blue skies! We had our first 'proper' frost this morning (there's maybe been others….but not by the time I've been up and about!)…..definitely glove weather!

  2. >Winter must be arriving any day here as well then. There was some frost up on the olive grove, but that's inland from us and higher up. Been picking more olives though in glorious sunshine and reasonable temperatures. Tomorrow we're off to the mill! I stripped down to my T-shirt while working!
