When the prickly pear cactus fruit are ready to eat, it’s autumn. This delicious fruit has a sweet, melon-like aroma and grows wild throughout Malta and Gozo. Tasty and said to be healthy but with a prickly skin. This giant flower, like the other images in this post were chosen for their colors, to give a sense of autumn. First of October and yet few signs of autumn while the temperature slowly drops, today we have 28 degrees. Did you know that Malta enjoy around 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, one of the highest rates in Europe!
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
Yesterday we took the car out to the countryside here in Malta…
…in search for signs of the autumn and this is what we found.

In November, a popular spot for locals to relax by the Mediterranean Sea.Fanny really enjoy to be in the nature. And for the first time she`s close to the Mediterranean Sea.
Around five it’s getting dark and time to go home. To the left you see the small desert island of Filfla. To the right some youths after a dip in the 22 degrees water, same temperature as in the air. We really had a great day!!
At the moment, I feel quite ambivalent and don´t know what to photograph or why I photograph what I actually photograph. Macro, people, architecture, flowers, my everyday life here in Malta. There´s so much I want to share, but sometimes my posts may looks a bit incoherent. That’s life! Hope you enjoy this anyway.

Varför skriver jag på engelska kan man undra när de allra flesta kommentarer jag får är från mina svenska följare. Dels behöver jag träna, trots att jag bott på Malta i många år så hakar sig min engelska en hel del. Rätta mig gärna vid påtagliga fel! 😐 Har också fått många nya följare från andra länder runt om i världen tack vare att min blogg blev uppmärksammad av WordPress i “Läsaren” under “Upptäck”. Helt fantastiskt och så roligt! Ja, ni som har WordPress vet vad jag menar medan ni andra får tänka till 😉
