We've been having an unusually rainy September here in Molfetta this year. September is usually sunny and warm and you can still spend many days relaxing at the beach. Some people even plan their "summer" vacation for September because prices go down and the beaches are less crowded. Anyone with plans like that this year will have had a nasty surprise!
The water is more than welcome, however, since we have been living in near-drought conditions for the past several years here in Puglia. And September is the perfect month for it, especially for the olive trees. They'll be harvested in November and rain now gives them a boost in growing fat and firm!
Every day for the past week has seen a few hours of sun interspersed with several rain showers. This full rainbow was spotted and photographed by my husband from the roof of our house.
