Fruit !!!! Lovely!!!!!
The fruit trees this year are laden with fruits, the cherries and apricots are ready now and every one is busy making jam and bottling the fruit. Gloria gave me lovely apricots , about 3 pounds so I hope to make jam tomorrow when I have been for extra sugar. I walked through the village of Subcetate twice this week to see Gloria and sit on her terrace and as I walked I was amazed at the amount of fruit this year . The plum and walnuts, pears and apples are all there waiting to ripen ( can't wait!!) and the joy is some of the trees are on the street so you can pick what ever you like as you walk along.
It is really hot at the moment most days reaching 86 deg.F to 90 deg F , I try not to go out in the afternoon as it is too hot for me but lovely and cool in my apartment and the flowers on my front are so nice now I just sit and do some knitting and enjoy the garden , also watch the goat and her babies skipping and playing in the field opposite. There are a lot of birds of pray hovering over the trees and then swooping down for their pray but good to watch. Also noticed a lot of beautiful butterflies and huge grasshoppers and very unusual insects which as yet I cannot put a name to. I must try and take some photo's of them all so I can maybe know what they are.
Got to go and water the plants now , they need twice a day at least now as they dry out very fast.
