Autum weekend

It’s cold. It’s grey. It’s a typical autmn weekend. Throw in a bit of rain and it feels like the Cape.

We have not been doing much. We did go ride through town to look at some houses. Apparently we are in the market for a new home.

I found this lonesome sunflower next to the road. Fighting the wind. Looking for the sun. Kinda sad in one way but courages in another. Not giving up regardless of the conditions. Standing out in the bleak weather.
Just loved it. Wish I had a proper camera with me and not just my cellphone.

  3. Ah… autumn! I think I need to spend more time in the southern hemisphere! I love autumn, winter, and spring… but summer just gets so doggone hot around here.

    Good luck house hunting! Sounds like you aren’t so convinced… =)

  4. Hey – we’ve been swimming today – so don’t dis the Cape Weather (yet!)! Although I can feel by the temperature in the evenings that autumn is right here… Instead of holding steady around 24 all night, it’s going down to around 19/20, soon it will be 15/16 and we’ll be bang in the middle of winter….booo.

    Where is the Supermom who always had a ‘proper’ camera in hand???

    Even though you took the pic with your cell phone – excelent quality.

    Yup, Autumn is here and I already feel winter in my bones.

  9. Had I known I could have sold you the house we’ve been trying to unload! What’s a half world move? We just sold it last week. Phew!
    Ugh. Autumn. We’re just trying to drag Spring into existence in Chicago. I love the picture but I can’t look at another gray sky. AAAAAAAGH! 🙂
