Early Autumn ?

Autumn leaves

I love the change in seasons but have to say that as beautiful as it is to see all the tree’s in Johannesburg’s suburbs turning different shades of copper, gold and red….I am not the slightest bit excited about this early nip in the air !
Aside from a clear signal that winter is coming all too soon, Autumn comes with the annoying drone of leaf blowers and the endless rasping sound of raking.
The upside….cosy fire places, fluffy winter duvets and the delicious soups our chef is conjuring up this week at The Parkwood. Nothing like a good old fashioned butternut soup or chilli prawn soup to warm things up.
Another definite upside to impending winter is that a girl loves any opportunity to wear her boots the minute she can.
