We have had weeks and weeks of still, dry weather. But yesterday was one of those warm buffeting, blowy type of days. It was turning all the leaves on the strawberry tree inside-out and giving the french doors a good shake. Lots of autumn leaves have taken the opportunity to let go of their twig-endhomes and scuttle across the road or shelter in twitching drifts in corners of the garden. And the banana palm grove is all tattered and bending over under the lashing of the gusts. I'm feeling all twitchy myself and unsettled. It's a great day for going for a walk just for the fun of being blown and flapped around - what the Dutch call "Uitwaaien". I think it's wonderful to have a word for 'to walk in windy weather for fun.'!
