Clanwilliam was our last stop before heading home. It was starting to get late and also the weather changed drastically. It started raining and we could not wait to get home…
Just outside Van Rhyns Dorp we stopped again for photo’s after having lunch at a little art studio. Unfortunately I was not allowed to take photo’s there.
We came across this nest with a feathered friend and her chick. I cannot say what kind of bird it is.
As we enter the Western Cape at the bottom of the Van Rhyns Pass there is a abandoned little Farm stall. Wait we are not finished yet these are the last photo’s taken around the Farm Stall…..
The most precious gift from God to me… My Mother….

As we enter the Western Cape at the bottom of the Van Rhyns Pass there is a abandoned little Farm stall. As we came down the Pass you just saw flowers and before my father could say stop I was already thinking first available safe stop I am stopping…. WOW we had a great time photographing all the plants and flowers. I totally forgot about time and after 45 minutes my mom said she thinks we better be heading home now… We tried to limit our stops to around 10 – 15 minutes but here we just could not stop capturing God’s given treasures to us…. I am so Blessed to have the opportunity to spend so much time capturing His gift to us an the best of all I can share the experience with my Mother and Father. I love them to bits.
31 August 2012 and if we look at the calendar it’s the last day of Winter. 1 September first day of Spring. Well here in South Africa anyway.
Today it’s 13 degrees Celsius outside, raining and the wind is howling. I can’t see that tomorrow 1 September the first day of spring will be any different. The only difference between today and tomorrow will be the name of the rain. Yes the rain will we called the first Spring showers….
When I was a young girl the picture I painted for myself of Spring was sunny blue skies, fields of flowers, butterflies sitting on the flowers and birds chirping in the trees. I guess I watched to much Heidi when I was small. 😀 Something else that I can remember about 1 September is that you did not go to school in a uniform the girls had on lovely sundresses and you took flowers to school for your teacher. In high school the boys gave the girls they liked flowers and everywhere you here of a spring dance to collect money for one or other charity.
As I grew up that picture changed and for as long as I can remember it was still cold, the wind was still howling and it was still raining on the 1st of September…
