My Sunday Photo: Hello Aloe Vera

Here I am again in Umhlanga Rocks South Africa, and this morning we went walking along the sea front. At this time of year, the Aloes are coming to the end of their flowering season, and although the birds have had a really good peck at them,  I was struck by how beautiful they still look against the deep azure of the sky.

It’s great to be back here for a short while. Happy Sunday to you all.

My Sunday Photo: A Study In Turquoise

Yesterday,  Great Egret was looking for a lunch date with a fish or two, as he stealthily stalked his way along the water’s edge. Happily for me,  my camera was in its usual place on my bathroom windowsill.

This morning, I cooked hubby his first bacon and egg breakfast since we moved here. He said that it was worth all the effort of building the new kitchen. This coming week is going to be quite exciting as we’ve booked a removal company on Wednesday, to bring the rest of our furniture out of storage.

Wishing you all a lovely Sunday.

My Sunday Photo: Meet Peter Rabbit

Once again, a photo taken through my bathroom window.  Peter marsh rabbit had heard from the other critters around here, how they are all now famous on WP and FB, so he timidly crouched there waiting for me to open my blind this morning. What could be sweeter than sweet little Peter?

Big brown soulful eyes

Ears perked up ready for flight

Fur I’d love to stroke.

My Sunday Photo: Linda Limpkin Returns

Lately, I’ve been a bit worried about Lennie Limpkin. He always used to be accompanied by his friend Linda, but I hadn’t seen her for quite some time. Lennie had been looking rather lonely of late, and I was really hoping that nothing untoward had happened to his lady friend. Anyway, yesterday whilst he was busy foraging in our neighbour’s backyard, I spotted Linda, gracing one of the trees just across the water. It’s always nice to know that my outdoor friends here are doing well.

Happy Sunday to you all. Next week, we should be getting some exciting deliveries of kitchen units, light-fittings, and appliances. Things are really looking up.

My Sunday Photo: Colourful Carousel

It’s grey and raining here in the ‘Sunshine State’ of Florida, so to brighten my day, here’s a holiday memory from last year. Whilst walking along London’s South Bank, we  came upon this bright and cheerful carousel, which I stood and watched for a while, remembering childhood days of fairground visits complete with sticky candyfloss, toffee apples, coconut shies, and winning a goldfish in a plastic bag which unfortunately got dropped on the way home. £2 in those days was a small fortune.

Hope you’re all  having a sunny Sunday.
