We’ve had a couple of very cold nights, below freezing with frost in the garden. Not nearly as cold as further north, and no snow here at all, but it’s still been quite wintry. There were a few olives left on our Lucque tree, that weren’t quite ripe when we picked the others, but they seem to have gone rather mushy as though they’ve been affected by the frost, although I’d be surprised at this since some varieties aren’t harvested until January and there are almost always freezing temperatures before then.
And the building work goes on
Above right, two big machines and a lorry…. it’s very noisy in our garden now. Above left, you can see how close the work is to the garden.
