Since this has been becoming a bit of a blah blah-g recently I thought I better try get back to being a Photoblog. This August has been a bit challenging from several points of view, including the doubling of my parental duties, the extraction of a tooth, combined with freezing cold weather. While July was dramatically warmer than expected, August has more than made up for it with regular frost and some snow on the mountain tops.
But – Spring is now here according to my diary, and some flowers seem to agree, putting on their finest to attract passing honey bees or birds.
The combination of yellow Othonna parviflora (Bobbejaankool) and Sutherlandia frutescens (Kankerbos) in the valleys is just too stunning, and when decorated with South Africa’s finest Sunbirds, the world is just beautifully alive with colour and life. Aaaah, breathe it in.
|Yay! From here on out its going to get warmer!|
