Early autumn in Sicily's Madonie mountains

Posted by Suzanne on 01 Oct 2016



This past week I have been in Polizzi Generosa enjoying the change that early autumn brings:


Midnight silence, storms, roses and ruby red indian figs

To arrive near midnight to a beautiful silence; the odd afternoon storm and shower coming in over the mountains; cool nights; mountain drives; the last of the summer roses; the refreshing taste of ripe fico d’India  (the fruit of the prickly pear)


Morning skies, badda beans, chestnuts and gifts to my front door

The early morning sky; a plate of Polizzani badda beans with pasta; quiet streets after the lively nights of summer festivals; the first chestnuts on the trees in the mountains; and a gift of fico d'India to my door.


Some autumn moments:
