you know the northern hemisphere is gagging for spring when crazy colour starts popping up all over the place.

it’s going to be spring soon! though our tricksy south african weather has been making everyone assume it’s spring already (this has probably been the mildest and most glorious winter in recent memory.) i bet we’re in for one more crazy cold front before the proper hot weather hits us though - remember when it snowed in august?
