Although it is the middle of winter, the last few days have been unusually warm. Even the local fynbos flowers are blooming (I have even been walking around in a T-shirt). But while the weather has been wonderful, I think that it is just about over, and we are going to be in for the much needed winter rain in a few days.
I think that these wilting sunflowers that I bought Lois the other day represent the weather (and no, they were not wilting when I bought them!).
