Autumn at the Berry Farm

A visit to Hillcrest Berry Farm for fresh raspberries reminded me that it's autumn here in Cape Town.

Autumn is a short season and there are few displays of colourful autumn trees. 

It was a damp day but a delicious light lunch and the view of the surrounding mountains made the little excursion from the city well worth the drive. 

My friends and I were each able to buy a couple of  punnets of fresh raspberrries, just about the last of the season, and we did come away with packs of frozen blueberries that will last well into winter.

The days are short, the evenings cool and winter is just around the corner. If you are in Cape Town or somewhere down south keep warm and happy stitching!

  1. Lovely photos. It was windy here yesterday so lots of leaves on the ground. Last year the last of the leaves fell mid-winter. Sounds like a good lunch.
