And now the olive harvest

Cold nights and sunshine days start to colour the olives and its time to pick.  Boxes of olives of all shades of green and black are collected together in the hoppers ready for the start of the press to produce that liquid green gold of fresh olive oil, ready for collecting from the mill just before Christmas.

Luberon vistas

Glorious views from the lovely old village of Menerbes in the Parc Naturel du Luberon.  Vines changing colours, the smell of woodsmoke, mist on the distant Vaucluse hills and the Luberon mountains, the perfect Autumn picture.
