More space between title and secondary x-axis

Hi,

In my plot I would like to use two x-axis, in order to label the thicks in two different units.
However, when I use the twiny command, the labels of the secondary x-axis overlap with the title of the figure.

Is there a way to increase the space between the title and the plot?
I already tried the top option in subplot_adjust, but this is also moving the title!

Here is a small example (attached the png output):
plt.figure()
ax1=plt.subplot(111)
plt.xlabel(‘axis 1’)
ax2=plt.twiny(ax1)
plt.xlabel(‘axis 2’)
plt.title(‘title’)
plt.show()

Thanks

plt.xlabel('axis 1')
ax2=plt.twiny(ax1)
plt.xlabel('axis 2')
plt.title('title')

Save a reference to the text object returned by title, and then adjust the y-coordinate of its position:

t = plt.title('title')
t.set_y(1.09)
plt.subplots_adjust(top=0.86)

This y-coordinate is in normalized Axes units, so 1.0 is the top of the Axes frame--except that there is a small additional hard-wired pad, so setting y to 1.0 still leaves a little space.
