Just loved the late autumn sunshine in the garden this afternoon. Some of the plants looked at their absolute best which is great as I've spent a lot of time sorting the garden with a lot of help from Michael.
The unusually orangey hue was caused by the sun shining through the smoke still billowing off the Helderberg.
As you can see in the photo below the main bit of the fire has moved over to the Stellenbosch side but only after having wreaked some serious destruction.
Still, it made for some nice colours in the garden and a spectacular sunset
