Excuse me? What do you mean, ‘Autumn’?
Yes, I know! We are heading for ‘winter’, yet so many of my plants are blooming merrily away.
It is one of the things I love about living in Cape Town. Here, lots of plants bloom twice a year, so mid-winter is as bright and colourful as mid-summer, but without the enervating heat!
But just to show it really is autumn, I give you my neighbour’s golden leaved tree! You have to look carefully for these deciduous trees dotted around, as most of our trees are evergreen:
Or like Miss Camellia, have no blooming idea what time of year it is!
post script: These photos were taken last week with my Nikon. I am happy to say that I am improving; ie I can usually take a photo in focus now!
