The veld grass is still a palette of browns and yellows at this time of the year. The weather is cold and the feeling of hibernation still prevails for the air is fresh and biting. Winter still has a grip on the countryside … or so one thinks until coming across one of the many isolated peach trees blossoming along the road.
As the majority of these trees grow close to the road, I can only imagine they originated from peach pips being tossed from passing traffic. Nonetheless, they make a beautiful mark and provide the comforting signs that spring is on its way!
