5 great things about Winter

1 * winter food - butternut soup, oxtail, and tender lamb shanks
2 * blankets and sweatshirts made out of soft fleece
3 * I love wearing socks and boots
4 * winter afternoons spent under a blanket with a good book
5 * the winter proteas, succulents and aloes are breathtaking!  I photographed these aloes at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens last weekend...



  1. Totally agree. Winter is my favourite season. The aloe garden at Walter Sisulu is also my favourite spot there.
