“And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep, and Autumn was awakened.” ~ Raquel Franco

I found this beautiful line on an Instagram friend’s post a few days ago, and it spoke to my heart. I subsequently discovered Raquel Franco’s writing and I love it. Mostly short and sweet, and very descriptive.

I said before that I love autumn. It is the slow turning of the leaves (it happens very slowly in South Africa), the gradual drop in temperatures, the shortening of the days that makes me so happy.

It is not a spectacular season here as in, say, Canada, but sometimes in some areas, it can be very beautiful…

I am planning to enjoy every moment of this changing of the seasons, and to get my home ready for the colder weather to come.

The leaves in the vineyards are starting to turn, and just sometimes, they turn a gorgeous red, which makes beautiful pictures. I will wait for that to happen…

About zelmare

Hallo to you from the southern most part of the African continent - South Africa!! To put my life in a nutshell : I raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), I became a doting grandmother two years ago and recently bought a house in the Western Cape, and in doing so, realized a dream I've had for many, many years. I love traveling, which I don't do often enough. I love living a simple life - cooking, gardening, knitting and of course, blogging. There is still a lot I want to do and see in my lifetime, but time will tell how much of that I can actually accomplish. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people here on WordPress! :)
