Is it really spring today?
Today, the first of September, is supposed to be the start of spring, when you can start putting the winder blankets and clothing away, and to start thinking about going to be beach, sundowners at the Brass Bell, and of course long afternoon braais.
Well, you could have fooled me. Yesterday was one of the coldest days this year (at least it felt that way) – I counted four hail-storms in the afternoon, and it snowed on the mountains – at the end of August!
These pictures of my garden were taken at 12:50pm – in the middle of the day.
While I can't wait for spring to arrive in full force, I think that we are going to need a little more patience before it arrives.
