While we might be short of water, and other things, here in the Western Cape, one thing we are not short of is – sunlight!
post script: Sunlight always makes me think of this beautiful song written by John Denver in 1971 and performed by Andy Williams; so let me share with you “Sunshine on my shoulders”.
Ethereal and delicately pale; this last rose of Autumn.
My daughter’s floribunda rose bush has continually produced pink blooms since the start of Spring, six months ago.
This is what it looked like then, in October last year.
I thought it interesting that these two photos, taken so far apart, were so similar; the position of the rose and buds being almost identical.
Although my Autumn rose is a little faded now, all it needs is dead-heading one last time before it has a little siesta.
Then it will be back in business for its winter blooming!
You have my undivided attention . . .
Apart from my left ear, which is listening out for any food that might be creeping up on me!

I think that this creamy-white rose looks even more beautiful for sidling up to the deep red one.

I love listening to the rain fall. It’s so peaceful.
Life-giving rain falls continuously all day long, filling rivers and streams, and the dams.
Well, it is winter and we really need it.

Of course, rain also falls on my stoep!
