Welcome arrivals

Thunder, heavy rain, clouds down to about 350m and water running ankle-deep in the streets of Carmine.

It had been a sadness to us that so far this year the shutters of one particular house have remained closed. Normally, this house is occupied from June onwards. Has been, indeed, for more than 40 years. And if Carmine had a garden fete, the associated garden would be busy producing the 1st-prize winners Biggest zucchini, Tastiest lettuces, Reddest tomatoes, Most luscious bean plants and Longest cucumbers.

But now our closest neighbours have finally arrived. And it's great to see their smiling faces, hear the clatter of their washing up, the chatter of their tv.

Bentornati!

Note the appearance of the deer in the village this evening, perhaps here to say welcome back as well.

Hi, Louise.
Thanks a lot for your answer. Now I can keep on searching.
Compliments for your blog. I would like to know the titles of your books and where they can be found. Andreas from Utrecht - Nederland.

Hi Andreas. You're welcome. My books are now, sadly, out-of-print and so cannot be obtained for love-nor-money. It's no great loss to the literary world! If you come up to Carmine during your visit, and you see a familiar face, please introduce yourself - it's always nice to meet readers! Good luck in your search. Louise
