Today was the first day it’s felt really autumnal, with a cold wind from the north drying anything that remained of the the rain we had early on Friday morning.  The sky was bright blue and the bamboo shoots waved in the breeze at the end of the garden.

Another sign of autumn – the olives are beginning to ripen:

  1. >Autumn has arrived here a couple of weeks ago with much fresher nightime temperatures. And that rain of yours arrived on the north wind in the early hours of this morning. Your olives are looking well advanced. It looks a good olive year this year if they don't all start to rot in this rain.

  2. >Autumn's definitely here and we've just begun to light the fire in the evenings, but our olives aren't ripening yet. Mind you they don't usually harvest them until the beginning of december around here.
