At long last I decided that my mom’s Anthurium Plant will be my photo of the day. My uncle gave the plant to my mom many many years ago.

Every year  since she got it it’s blooming like mad and when they moved to us we thought now the plant is going to die because it had to be outdoors.  But instead it went on and on and giving more and more lovely flowers.

It’s winter  here in South Africa and color is always welcome on the cold and gloomy days.

At one stage I was very into zen gardens and later on into fairy gardens.  Hubby made me a little box for my garden and I picked up rocks at the river and the beach. Well so the phases passed but my box, sand and rocks were still an ornament in our bathroom.

This morning I took a small ornament of a mom and daughter that Armand bought me in Hermanus at The Matchbox a little second hand store and a plastic coconut tree. Combined it with my Zen garden and made a nice beach scene…

Gooseberries…. Njammies. I just love them and the boys also love them.

I started out with a small plant that my father gave me and now I have two big bushes.

Today I tried out my O-Flash when I took the photo’s of the flower and the the fruit.

The fruit is not ready yet it will take a few weeks before I can harvest and eat it. I just better get to it before the birds do…

I ordered my ring flash about a month ago. First they sent me a email to say that the flash is out of stock and then while we were on the SAPS cycle tour I received an email to say that my package are on it’s way. I was so happy.

The following week I went to my postbox at least 3 times a day to see if my letter from Customs have arrived.  Nothing….

My father and Ronald asked every now and then have I received any word on my flash and every time the answer was no Nothing… Then I got an email on Monday from the supplier to say that due to bad weather there are a delay in the delivery.

Oh well I was telling myself that they did say it can take from 3 to 8 weeks for delivery depending on circumstances.  This morning my father came to me with a slip from the Post Office. My first thought was my flash!  But then the previous two times I ordered something from overseas I had go and collect it at the Customs counter in Epping industrial. I took the slip and after I picked up the boys from school I went straight to the Post Office and when the lady came back to the counter with a big package I wanted to shout out loud my flash…

I got in the car and tweeted immediately. I could not wait to get home to see what was in the package and when I opened it I was a happy lady. My ring flash have finally arrived….
