We deliberately leave the grass long around the Frantoio at this time of year to encourage the fireflies.
This year was exceptional, as soon as the darkness fell hundreds of dancing points of light appeared and flitted back and forward through the olive groves. Quite, quite, magical, resulting in some very wide eyed and excited children.
The season lasts about ten days and then it’s over and it’s back to the strimming !!June 27, 2013 12:00 am
