For us, autumn is often a beautiful time of year. There are the notorious electrical storms which cause havoc every 2-3 weeks, knocking out the power on/off for a day or so, no internet or phone often and really torrential storms can even disrupt the central water supply as it is drawn from large underground rivers in the mountains (like no water for 6 weeks last year, which was fun).
However, that is the exception. For most of the time, the skies are clear and blue, but slowly, day by day, we start to see more and more clouds as winter slowly edges nearer.
But as I mentioned just the other day, this year is gorgeous still… even if it does confuse the hell out of the garden and the orchard! This was taken 2 days ago, and really shows the calmness of the weather right now 😀
