As of March 21st or the Autumnal equinox here in the Southern hemisphere summer is officially a thing of the past fortunately for you, you live in the Southern Hemisphere and you’re even luckier to live in a country that has the best weather all year round – well except for Cape Town…winters in Cape Town can be brutal. But if you are anywhere else in South Africa chances are your weather will still be beautiful with clear skies and sunshine, albeit weaker sunshine than our glorious summer months you will still be able to enjoy the sunshine most of the time anyway. But don’t get too down, there are definite positives to autumn and winter; hot chocolate, rolling in piles of leaves and dog poop. Ruddy cheeks and cold noses, warm woolly hats with matching scarves and mittens.

Is autumn a time for celebrations or Commiserations?

How did you celebrate the official start of the colder months, did you get one last dance naked under the light of the moon in before it gets a tad too cold? Or did you spend the last days of summer soaking up the sun like a lizard, storing all that vitamin D in your soul for when the days are dark, the morning cold and the sun shines weakly in the sky.

However you chose to bid farewell to summer and all its hot, sticky, sweet, lazy glory we hope that you won’t be too unkind to the winter months, winter also has her good points and look at it this way at least we’re not in the northern hemisphere where it’s like Narnia – always winter never spring, our winters are mild in comparison. Positively tropical, so we don’t need to pile on the pounds of winter jerseys or stuff our face with breads and soups and stews and end the season off looking like the Michelin man.
