After the Storm

The early hours of this morning we were awoken by rain,hailstones and violent winds.No electricity,alarms,sirens and an eerie,scary view from our windows.Yesterday,with scorching temperatures,obviously it was natures way of cooling things down.

We were lucky in one respect only one tree fell due to these forceful winds,we were amazed that there wasn’t more damage, the vineyard survived.! One of our friends lost his whole crop with damage from hailstones.

This is the tree that fell on the roadside in front of our house. After harvesting this was the first Sunday morning home in a long time for Silvano, but had to work just the same…garden 004

We’ve had grey skies all day, as the hour of sun set approaches however the suns rays are dazzling and playing shadows within the garden.
