Warm days, cool nights and bumper crops

Over the last few weeks we have had truly wonderful weather, amazing sun rises, some misty, and a mix of warm, even hot days with cool nights.

I love this time of year, the feeling that winter is fast approaching but with a hint of summer sunshine to keep us going strong. We have had a few windy nights which in fact has been rather good as mother nature has helped to make all the almonds and walnuts drop from the trees, so thanks MN.

Today i spent some time harvesting the almonds and what a bumper crop we have had this year.

The last of our summer guests departed last week, lunches and dinners were enjoyed outside.

It was even warm enough to sit outside a few nights and enjoy the stars and garden.

As were the railings we found at a reclamation yard, 30 meters of them, they are going to go around the edge of the decking, mmm mind you we are not quite sure how yet!!!

And Barnaby Pickles and Miel Miaow continue to survey their land, so all is happy with the world.
