We've been out in the garden this afternoon collecting up leaves and generally tidying up. I had it pointed out to me that we wouldn't have been able to do this in Scotland at this time of the year because it's already dark by 3.30 in the afternoon and it would probably be below freezing with a strong wind. Here, it's been another perfect day although there is a bank of mist rolling in from the Tiber. Once again the valleys have disappeared into the fog and the house hangs suspended above this vast sea of cloud with the occasional island surmounted by a town breaking the surface in the distance.Quite magical.
