Tuesday View 15th November

Yesterday was dull and cloudy all day but today is totally different, the sky is blue and the sun is shining, but it is cold.  Our weather in Italy seems to have been unseasonable almost all year.  We had a wet spring (May and June), an extra hot July and August, a very wet autumn from September to now.

Many of the trees are actually hanging on to their leaves.  The walnuts are almost bare but the mulberry and Pommegrantite may have thinned a little but most of their leaves remain.

The view doesn’t change much through winter so I’ll always try to include something else in this Tuesday post.

It is the grasses that give so much pleasure when the sun shines through them.

Hope you have a good week.

  1. Christina the view is beautiful with the blue sky in the background and that sun so great that illuminates the plants in a spring way. The Romero is very beautiful and in bloom? The plants are very beautiful to be in November. Villosum Pennisetum is very beautiful with its “feathers” that fall. Good week for you too. Greetings from Margarita.

  2. Oh yes, the grasses are a godsend in autumn and winter. Your Pennisetum really lights up that spot and is simply beautiful. The sky is such a lovely colour too – I love clear winter days like that! 🙂

    • There hasn’t been enough days like today with clear skies and sun. This autumn I think there’s been more grey days than I can remember in all the time we’ve been in Italy.

  3. The garden looks refreshed by the rain even with the falling leaves and dried bits of summer. The crabapple is a surprise though, I don’t think it’s ever registered as an apple even though it’s right there in plain view. I think of your garden as more of a rosemary and olives kind of place!
    I love the grass.
