My New Zealand mother-in-law rang this morning and reminded us of the celestial happening currently underway. I speak of course of the transiting of the Sun by Venus. Good job she did remind us as the next one is not until 2117!
Yesterday we had a thunderstorm exactly a year to the day when we had a severe one with a major hailstorm which damaged the olive harvest. Luckily the one yesterday was very mild.
Father's day is hoving into view so why not adopt an olive tree - great idea, great gift. http://www.casa-margherita.com/adopt-a-tree/cat_6.html
