Idyllic Winter Scene

An idyllic scene

Wispy white clouds and blue sky

The bleak mid-winter?

This was early one morning, just as the sun was rising!

I’m sure you all know by now that winter in the Western Cape is my favourite time of year. Cooler temperatures, rain, sun, beautiful nature; what’s not to like?

This one tree of mine is totally confused!

You may think that seeing golden autumn colours now is nothing out of the ordinary.

But here in Cape Town it is summer; and will be for the next four months at least.

So what’s the story with this tree?

I have no idea!

It obviously thinks it’s in the Northern hemisphere and that winter is approaching.

Each year it catches me by surprise and it’s the oddest thing to see it so way out of sync with the rest of my plants.

But – it’s also kind of pretty!
