Winter Skies

Winter’s Day

Sunrise on a cold winter’s day.

This is my neighbour’s tree, which I love because it is the only one near me that is deciduous and waves its bare branches in the pink winter skies.

Most of my trees are evergreen, like my Eugenia. My large Syringa will eventually shed all its leaves, but at the moment it’s still looking very green. It better get a move on though, as the sun is starting to come back already!


And it’s only chilly until the sun rises higher in the sky, then, barring any storm fronts heralding gales, the day rapidly warms up.

Winter is mild here in Cape Town.

      haha Each to their own. πŸ™‚ Since we rarely get clouds here in summer, our summer skies are less colourful. Also, I prefer our cooler winter weather to those scorching summer days! πŸ™‚

        Actually – I didn’t see a rose Zinfandel on line; it seems to be mostly Red. But when you find a good wine you enjoy, you always remember it. I have my favourite SA wines too. πŸ™‚
