Silver sided

It has been very windy here lately and so on days like that the olive groves change colour as the silver underside of the olive leaf is exposed completely changing the colour way of the grove.

Also the movement of the branches brings to mind the series of olive grove paintings that Vincent Van Gogh produced.

  1. Your blog put me in a great mood during my commute to work today. I love your succinct summations of the day and the little observations that make your grove magical. My husband and I recently honeymooned in Umbria and, of course, fell in love with it. Will keep reading to keep my visions of Italy alive! Thank you!
