Waiting for ... (19)


This week nothing special happened except for the first nights with frost that came very unexpectedly. It was for this region a cold record. Good thing about it and very cosy: the fire was lit for the first time this autumn.

Unfortunately this had a great influence on our garden and on the vineyards. Our tomato plants were frozen, so no more tomatoes now. But above all the wine leaves were frozen too - with the consequence that this year there will be no beautiful autumn colours. See for yourself and compare with last year.

Now there is only some fruits left: apples and walnuts.

Oh yes I almost forgot: the third light for the staircase arrived and was installed after four months of waiting.
