September weather...

This can be classed as one of my favorite times of the year when in September after five months of unrelenting sun and heat, the first thunderstorms and rain come along and clean out the air.

September in Malta is quite an experience, a battle of the forces of nature. Rain, storms, thunder, lightening and then strong winds blow and batter this tiny island. I love all the drama about it, the changing light, colours and smells. Out door events change from concerts and festivals to exhibitions, theatre, opera and film. BBQs transform into candle lit suppers at friends. And my most favorite is that I revert back to drinking red wine, my trusty bottle of Gin safely packed away till next June.

This morning I got caught in a downpour on the way to my car, linen trousers soaked and shoes nearly ruined. But that is the first sign of Autumn and don't we need it! Bring on the challenge Mother nature. I'll be ready for it tomorrow, brolly, wellies and all!
