Today it is 21th of September, the Winter Solstice.
From now on days will really get shorter, mornings and evenings will get darker and chillier and the midday sun will have a hard time warming us up.
The olives on our olive trees are slowly turning from green to purple.
The olive tree is such a beautiful and strong tree, it can
live for 2000 years when it finds a suitable place.
It is a tipical Mediterranean plant but grows as north as Torbole on the Garda lake.
Our trees are between 20 and 40years, not much but it is
a nice thought knowing they will still be here even when
we will all be gone.
To have a garden teaches you to have patience, to be thankful, to enjoy every moment.
The photos were shot in black and white.
