Icing sugar mountains

Heading out last Friday on the N1 to the Cederberg for another long weekend - lots of snow on the mountains of Franschhoek in the distance. The vineyards looking rather wintry too. But hopefully the cold and wet might produce a good season for wine. Certainly will for cherries and other berries that like a little icy chill.


  1. I was hoping not to see snow for another few months!!

  2. I'm so jealous. I would love to see snow on the mountains like that every now and then. To tell the truth, I've seen (as in got to be in it and touch it) snow once many many years and neither my wife nor the kids have ever seen it. Problem is that it falls about 3 hours away from here and when it does the timing is never right to go and see it.
