    Beautiful! Most welcome when everything here is turning brown.

      Apple, I had never been south of the equator before. It’s comforting to know that, when winter arrives in the northern hemisphere and the weather is cold and miserable, it’s summer in the southern hemisphere!

  2. I agree, most beautiful! Love the color and wonderful shots!

  3. These are all beautiful. I’m not sure which one I like the best!
