The weather forecast was 100% chance of rain between 6 am and noon; we wanted to plant two new olive trees, mainly to provide privacy, but the oil is a bonus, so we spent the morning working in the garden.
Yesterday we had travelled up to hear a Christian author name Adrian Plass at Torrevieja. The two hour journey there and then back, had been rewarded with a good lunch and a very insightful and funny talk.
The lime tree has a lot of fruit on, I have already picked and made a batch of lime marmalade. I have promised some fruit to a friend for Tuesday. The male canaries are beginning to sing again after their moult in the summer.
Trees planted and some general tidying, completed today’s labour in the garden, we had a a few drops of rain out of a very dark cloud about 1pm.
