While the warm temperatures still say summer, little signs that autumn is just around the corner are starting to appear along the Amalfi Coast. The cool mountain breeze in the morning reminds me of the crisp autumn days ahead, and everywhere the grapes are getting heavy on the vines. Earlier this week while out and about for a walk to Amalfi, I noticed the olives are starting to get nice and plump.
It was one of those perfectly clear and bright days, and the olive trees nicely framed the tip of Ravello where the beautiful gardens of the Villa Cimbrone are located.
The steps were covered in olives that had blown off in the strong winds we’ve had this week. It made the walk a little treacherous, and I had to watch carefully where I took my steps.
It’s always hard to say goodbye to summer for the year, but these little reminders of the pleasures of autumn ahead certainly help!
