When I took this photo I caught the low, early morning sunrise bathing the trees with yellow light and highlighting that autumn is right around the corner.
It was just last week; the end of February!
You have to be quick to catch autumn in Cape Town. Many of the trees are evergreen, like this Eugenia, so don’t hint that winter is on the way.
Others, like my neighbour’s deciduous tree, advertise quite clearly that summer is drawing to a close.
Autumn is fleeting here. Next time you look, the branches will be bare, and all the leaves will be in your swimming pool!
