Autumn became Spring!



Mother Nature was slowly turning her face towards Autumn when we flew away from home, but after countless hours of flying, our arrival was in a country embracing the dawn of Spring. No jet lag was experienced on either journey - our two countries sit on the same longitude and enjoy a time difference of only one hour.
Here are some images and a colour clue if you wish to work out which country we visited.

    1. Hello Debra - yes, it is difficult to choose - there are apparently 54 African countries.

  3. Hi Rosemary,
    It looks like you enjoyed a wonderful holiday full of beautiful flowers and views. I think everyone is going to guess what might seem obvious South Africa , I am going to say.... Namibia.

  5. All I can say is lucky bugger and great photographs:o) To continually arrive in springtime in each country is my idea of heaven.

  6. I'm going to guess Morocco or Algeria, and lean towards Morocco. You show a coastline, mountains, vineyards, several people groups, and a variety of wildlife. Looking forward to seeing more.

  7. Of course I know the amazing country you visited, having been twice, and can recognize the places, (although I've not been to Capetown), animals, birds etc. as only being South Africa. Of course you did tell me in your e-mail some time back - so I feel I feel a bit of a cheat, haha!

    Beautiful photos Rosemary - I hope so much that time spent there was enjoyable in that lovely weather. I would love to go again - anywhere in Africa - I have had such fabulous times on that continent. Doubt I'll be back though so, like you may just have to enjoy the memories.

    1. Somewhere in Africa is right Linda - there are one or two extra clues thought as to the African country visited.

  12. Hello Rosemary,
    What beautiful vivid colours and such gorgeous flowers! The slight difference in time would be appreciated, but not the long hours of flying. I wonder if you have been visiting South Africa. A place I would love to visit.
    Hope you have recovered from the flight and enjoying Autumn at home.

    1. Hello Betty and well done - African countries are difficult to identify with there being 54 of them.
