So autumn seems to be getting established. Still plenty of sun and warmth, but there are days now that are a bit gloomy or when the wind blows off the mountains bringing a chill. The mercury can sometimes drop dramatically at night and many a” heated” discussion is had about when the heating will be turned on and whether “juste la chiminée” counts.
Strangely only two weeks ago, I was walking around delivering flyers, thinking how wonderfully summery everything looked. After the dryness of summer some major rain in early September had given the countryside a new lease of life and the greens were fabulous. Those greens have now started nearly overnight turning to the colours or autumn. Better get out and gather my walnuts sharpish!
