Random photos of a March Lily

Hi everyone,

Just some photo’s I took of the March Lilies in our garden when it bloomed in March 2019. I took it over a period of two weeks.

This year it was beautiful and kept blooming for a while. Looking forward to see them again in 2020….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Berghoff Fynbos Farm Part 10 of 10

Well it has been an absolute pleasure sharing our weekend at Berghoff Fynbos Farm with you all here on my blog.

Here’s a few more photo’s I took before heading back home…

We had a awesome time although on our way back home Mornè’s car broke. I would not recommend that you go to visit in a normal sedan. Normal cars are not made to withstand that bumpy road. Don’t get me wrong if the roads were in better condition even though it is a dirtroad I would surely visit more often. Unfortunately I do not have a 4×4 or a vehicle that can take the punch.

So to sum up the only reason at this stage that is keeping me from going back is the road. I am not afraid of dirt roads and I love driving on them but the damage and costs involved to fix your car is just too much.

The views on your way back are absolutely stunning….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work and I look forward to sharing more of my travels with you.

On our walk back Lian just wanted to climb the rockformations. It was very hot and he did not have sufficient water with him. Also it is not safe to do it alone.

I continued taking photos of the beautiful landscapes, rockformations and flowers on the farm.

Lian did get to climb a rock and when he got back he told us that it was very hot near the rocks.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Hope you are enjoying the walk on Berghoff Fynbos Farm with us.

After Breakfast we all went for a walk and I captured the most beautiful landscapes and flowers.

One thing my boys have gotten from me is they both also love nature and photography. At one point in their lives both wanted to persue a career in photography and believe me that was very flattering but I told them that they can always do photography combined with another career or as a paid hobby.

Both are persuing a career in IT and I am super proud of them.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

During our walk we saw a “fountain” or so we thought anyway. When we got closer and saw the pipes on the ground we figured out that our “fountain” is just a broken pipe.

That did not stop us from taking advantage of it to cool down before we start walking again.

Desiree did not want to get wet and Dad and Armand dragged her in the water. She laughed so much it did not take them long before she was soaked. We had such a laugh.

I am very glad that my boys are so close with their Grandfather and both of them reminds me alot of my Father. They love playing tricks on people and can be very naughty in a good way of course.

Rockformations is one of my weaknesses. I always try to see what it looks like. At Berghoff Fynbos Farm there was no shortage of different Rockformations…

The morning of dad’s birthday I woke up very early to capture the sunrise and to prepare his birthday breakfast.

It was so peaceful and quiet. Just before sunrise the birds started singing and flying from one protea tree to the next one. Unfortunately I could not capture them because I was busy with breakfast and had to go inside and check on the progress from time to time…

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Hope you enjoyed the sunrise just as much as I did.

We visited Berghoff Fynbos Farm in December 2018 to celebrate dad’s birthday.

The road to the house was not really suitable for a sedan but we made it. When we got there the house was open and we could just walk in. I thought it was going to be very warm inside the house, but it was refreshing and cool… We sorted out the sleeping arrangements and started unpacking the car and got settled.

We then went outside to drink a cooldrink on the stoop and waited for my dad, brother and his wife and kids. They only came through a bit later.

The views however from the stoop was gorgeous and the first thing I unpacked was my camera and started clicking away…

After drinking my cooldrink I grabbed my camera and went exploring. I just could not sit still and admire the views from the stoop any longer. It was like an invisible hand pushed me to go and explore…

Now as you all know I love capturing flowers and beautiful landscapes. Berghoff Fynbos Farm surely don’t have shortage of both. The dam or pond what ever you like to call it was the focal point of most of my photo’s during the weekend and I promise you you will have seen it from different angels by the time we reach post 10 of our weekend.

I hope you enjoy my walk with me…. Oh and if you see the photo of a stick. Look closely it is not a stick… I was taking photos of a flower when the stick walked over the pathway underneath the flower. The sudden movement startled me a bit until I saw it was a stick insect.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my post.

Big birds, big eggs and childhood memories…..

Ostriches are very big birds that can’t fly…. But oh my word they can run very fast and they lay very big eggs….

I used to love to listen to the stories my mother told me about her childhood vacations on the Ostrich farm were her grandparents stayed. She told me how she and her nephew use to go play in the Ostrich penns. They were not aware that it was breeding season and got to close to the eggs. Mom told us that she never knew she can run that fast or jump over the fence….

When I was about 10 years old my parents took us to Oudtshoorn known for all it’s Ostrich farms. My mom also showed us were she spent her school holidays. I remembered that holiday as if it was yesterday. Sitting on the back of that big bird and feeding it. I found it very interesting that Ostriches eats stones well everything they can swallow to be honest. They really like shiny things too.

Ostrich eggs are very big and srong. One can stand on it and it won’t break. I would never believed it but I saw it with my own two eyes. One Ostrich egg equals 24 eggs and it is a taste to get use to. I personally love it especially when you make omelettes of it.

While visiting the Westcoast National Park last year for the first time I had the opportunity to take some awesome photo’s of the Ostriches in a field of yellow flowers.

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog.
