GREETINGS FROM A REALLY BEAUTIFUL AND SUNNY
Hello there, dear friends!
As you can see the Namaqualand daisies are blooming in all their glory.
Pavements in our city are awash in their orange splendour!
They are highlighted even more against the backdrop of our exquisite blue skies...
Our lavender is also giving off its ample fragrance right next to our bedroom windows...
Our trees, however are still bare, but are starting to show their tiny buds and the weaver bird in our garden is still constructing a stream of nests in the hope of female company.
... spends a lot of her time underneath the bird feeder,
in the hope that her feathered friends will share their bounty.
She's also plucked up the courage to try out the pool loungers when I invite her up.
I think she'd prefer to be under the bird-feeder though!
Walks are still on the cards.
(Please excuse KING TOFFEE's face make-up - he's taken to rolling in the leaves at every opportunity...strange doggie!!!)
We had a wonderful surprise this evening when "The Boss" walked in with a parcel all the way from Michigan in the USA.
had taken it upon himself so send his lady-love,
a BIG and very thoughtful token of his affection...
As per his note, it seems that he is busy digging a hole, all the way from his garden in Michigan to our part of the world...just to be with TAMMY-GIRL.
Not only that, but I received a few wonderful gifts from Mr Scout's dear momma...
Mimi has sent a little heart pin to me and has kept the matching one with her.
How touching it is to know that I share something with someone so far away.
Thank you, Mimi!!!
...and this little giraffe - made from recycled materials in support of the animal rescue site!
As if this wasn't enough, Mimi also sent me a beautiful lapel pin in honour of
Thank you so, so much!!!
What wonderful friends I have!!!
I feel truly blessed to have been given so much kindness from folk that I've never met.
To all my friends, please accept this picture of one of the small flowers in my garden as a token of my appreciation for you all!
If you stare at it long enough, it should radiate my thanks to you!!!
I'm sorry I've not had much time on the blogs - either for posting or for visiting.
Things are rather busy here at the moment, so thank you for your understanding.
I'm hoping to be visiting the puppies tomorrow and hopefully will bring back some more photographs of how they've grown. They are 3 weeks old at the moment and I can't wait to see what they look like!
Sending lotsaluv to you all and another special thank you to Mimi and Mr Scout!!!
You guys are great!!!
