Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring – but not here!

The theme relates to something that doesn’t really happen at the coast of KwaZulu Natal, and inland it has six months to go before it is underway.  I could, of course, go rummaging through archives for some springy stuff, but I’m too lazy for that.  So my pics will be a ‘post … um … Autumn’ rather than a ‘post mortem’ of Spring not going sproing.  Colourful, anyway!

    Your garden is beautiful.
    Appreciate your weather, here it feels as if Spring will never come this year, never mind summer.

    Beautiful photo’s Col, and a beautiful time of the year up here! Leaves, leaves and more leaves – such lovely colours, but such a job to rake up.

    At last I get to see real autumn leaves falling and scattered over the lawns. Not looking forward to the Highveld winter too much, but then it’ll be Spring again. (The song: Tulips/Twolips from Amsterdam springs to mind) 😉

  18. I get so homesick for England when I see wonderful spring photos of crocuses and daffodils on people’s blogs. I wouldn’t like to have to endure the winter though, so I’ll opt to stay in warmer climes. 🙂 Lovely garden pics, Col.
