Though temperatures are still summery here in Cape Town, there is a chill in the air once the sun goes down.

I guess it is Autumn!

And in case you hadn’t noticed, there is a bird perched right at the top of the tree in that last photo, basking in the dawn’s early rays.

 

post script: Because you are probably singing it in your head anyway, you can listen to the song by Simon and Garfunkel here:Β Β Leaves That Are Green.

post post script: One again, to achieve the full effect of the colour of these Autumn leaves, tilt your screen away from you and watch them light up!

      I don’t remember what Joburg is like in Autumn, but there are mostly evergreens around CT. This is a neighbour’s tree (sneaky!) πŸ™‚

      haha True, but you should also be used to feeling topsy turvy, growing up in Australia πŸ™‚

      Spring seems fairly late? Or is this usual?
      While we have a few golden trees here, there are many other plants just starting to produce buds – like my Camellia bush!
      Basically it is always ‘summer’ in Cape Town. πŸ™‚

      Last week was Autumn, today is Winter! haha Howling gales and rain. Yes, the seasons, like sunset, happen rapidly.
      Thank you for reading – you must be really tired. (I’ve just read your post.)

      I still feel confused with the seasons, having grown up in the Northern Hemisphere! But I love to see scenes from other parts of the world, especially snow when I am oh so hot! πŸ˜€

        Never mind. Maybe I should call myself Scifi and Little Monkey – if that would clarify things! πŸ™‚
        But I know what you mean, and have sometimes commented on someone’s blog – thinking it was someone else! Oops! πŸ˜€

    It’s been many years since I was in Cape Town, and it was Spring then, but I remember the evergreens. And the bright blue water and the whales. It was blissful, and gorgeous. Thanks for the memories.

      Today for sure – as we have rain and super strong winds. It would take a Super Mossie to combat these!
      (Yeah I’m always a bit behind in my writing! It Was sunny!)
