An early morning saunter along the lanes and tracks around my home is, at this time of year, one of the best experiences you can have. It is cool, there is usually a light breeze and the sun is warm, but not yet hot.
The lack of rainfall this year is really starting to show. The olive trees which a dew months ago were covered in flowers, are now dropping their young fruit because of the drought. There is no sign of any rainfall on the horizon either!
