The leaves have taken on their autumn colours and are dropping rapidly. Soon the vinyards will be bare as the days get cooler and cooler. We hope the rain will begin to fall to fill up our dams for the next hot summer. We'll be watching out for the snow-capped mountain tops and rooting out our winter woolies from the back of the cupboard. It's that time of year when we batten down the hatches and prepare ourselves for cold couple of months.

Autumn in Franschhoek is undoubtedly the best season of the year, albeit a short one. The cooler days bring us relief from the summer heat, invigorates and revives us and tells us to get outdoors before the cold winter days start. The vine leaves are starting to change from dark green to rich reds, rusts and yellows. They will soon drop to carpet the ground beneath the bare stalls so get your camera out and enjoy the riot of colour while you can.
Our village is blessed to be surrounded by majestic mountains. It is what lures tourists to our valley and what keeps the locals here. Every day we get to see these giant guardians standing on our horizon watching over us. Fortunately, we don’t only have to look at them from afar, we can walk in them and experience nature on their many hiking trails, get some exercise and take in the big blue sky.
