As they say, thanks for sharing! A good read as always.

When commenting at the start of my own scribblings for October, it occurred to me that the fruit on our sole orange tree was beginning to turn orange and even the sole lemon tree that only has a few minuscule lemons was showing signs of improvement. Yes, I think that Autumn is definitely upon us. The rate at which the grass is growing is a clear sign that the strimmer will be seeing action soon and the chainsaw will be hard at it cutting logs for the fire. Autumn is finally with us!

What a colourful read Nafsika and all so topical to me! We had our first plum and apple crumble last weekend and the freezer is packed with hearty soups ready for those cold, damp days!

Our land has already changed colour from 'Summer Brown' to 'Autumn Green' due to the often torrential rains we have had recently and I'm sure there are more of the beautiful little pink cyclamens than ever before.

Thank you for sharing your Autumn with us!

Think before you speak! If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.

 I've never been in Corfu in fall, but could almost feel the change in weather in your descriptive writing. Loved the idea of the big leaves audibly falling--so different from here where they are many but flutter down softly onto the grass. Great photo choices, too.
