I saw a whole bed of these wonderful spring flowers growing outside Tygervalley shopping centre, and the spring Namaqualand Flowers are already in full bloom. It truly seems like we are having an early spring, very strange for July.
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!).
