We made our first fire for the winter last night Smile There is not enough snow on the mountains do not warrant a photo, but V2 is an effort to take one in the overcast conditions Smile
I am glad so many found the Strelizia photo worthy of a comment and vote Smile

Hi Herman, a little of that cold would feel really good here. Starting to get really hot up here.

I like your landscape a lot. Detail front to back.

That looks cosy Herman, I can hear the crackle from here; speaking as someone who has a lot of experience in these matters, I can confirm, that is definitely snow on the top there.

I took a tour around Swellendam the other day, may have passed your hour house without knowing it courtesy of Google World, then took a tour around my area and there was my old car I changed in December, I loved that car.
