My Sunday Photo: The ‘Welcoming’ Committee

It’s been a while since I’ve seen an alligator in our lake, but on Friday, a juvenile ‘gator, probably just four feet long, came gliding in to shore. His approach did not go unnoticed however,  as Mr. GBH, Lenny Limpkin and a representative of the Iggy family had gotten word of his imminent arrival, and were right there waiting for him.

Mr. GBH the self-appointed Chairman of the Residents’ Committee, using his sternest tone of voice, told young Al in no uncertain terms that his presence was not welcome on their peaceful grassy bank. “I’m quite happy to share the fish with you, as long as you’re not too greedy, but you are definitely not allowed to trespass on our territory. I realise that there are many tasty pickings here on land, such as small birds, iguanas, rabbits, squirrels, as well the occasional pet dog or cat, but such creatures are absolutely out of bounds, and I just want you to know that we are watching you. That’s all. You may go now. ” Well, that told him in no uncertain terms and he hasn’t been seen since.

Thanks to hubby who always has one eye out of the window for any interesting activity. He took the photos for me. My eye is healing well after the op, but I still can’t see distance at all. I guess I’ll  just have to be patient, but it’s not easy. I truly appreciate all  your good wishes on my last post.

Happy Sunday everyone.

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.
