Good morning....
Thank you to everyone for their continued support and to Herman (Hermanus) and carol (Caziwinkles) for awarding me their UA's...a big thank you.
Today another viola but this time after the rain looking very tearful.
We had a very windy and wet weekend in Cape town, 250mm of rain in one day, strong winds 70-90km and hail the size of marbles. Snow has fallen o the mountains as well. I believe we have another two days of it. A 14 deg high for us today.
Have a nice week

Morning Colleen ! I remember when we visited my mother in law in Cape Town that it was always warmer there than in Swellendam - so 14 C is cold for you guys Smile We are sporting a cool 7 C here . We saw the sun briefly this morning and I rushed out for a few photos but nothing to get excited about ! A beautiful image you have here this morning - I like how the drop magnifies the centre colours.Grin
