Autumn is proving a very magical time of year. And changeable. From cold rains at the end of September to a Spanish ‘Indian’ Summer with sometimes the temperature reaching the 30 s. The mushrooms and the mushroom hunters have been out in full force. Along with gathering the chestnuts it is a very popular time of year for the Spanish to enjoy Autumn colours in the Sierra Aracena and forage. More on the chestnuts later as am still busy collecting them and not often in a wifi bar!

Dahlias might become a favourite. These survived the August drought and have been flowering away. Just fading a bit on Oct 31st.
