Yesterday morning I started feeling very lightheaded and thought maybe it is my bloodpresure or sugar. I tested both but it was normal. I went to bed last night with a slight headache and a sore throat. Woke up around 3:24 this morning feeling like a bus🚌 ran me over. What a way to start spring🌺
I wanted to do our grocery shopping🛒 today but I think I will rather stay in bed 🛌and take it easy.😴
According to the weather forecast we are having a lovely cool Spring day🌞🌸. With a maximum temperature of 19°C predicted. It also shows that it is going to rain 🌧️later tonight.
On my To-Do List for today
Stay in bed 🛌

Answer some comments on blog
With all my heart thank you for your support and taking the time to look at my posts and photos. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow and comment I receive.
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.
While driving in Postberg you spot a lot of beautiful flowers but one can’t really take nice photo’s from your car. One have to get out and get in close. Only then do you find hidden gems.
I tried to identify the flowers by going through my books. I use Wild Flowers of South Africa by Braam van Wyk, Field Guide to Wild Flowers of South Africa and also Field Guide to Fynbos by John Manning. My only problem is some of the photo’s are so small and some only taken from different angles than mine that I struggled to identify them 100%..
I can only blame myself too. At one stage I was quite clued up on my flower. But if you don’t refresh your mind every now and then one seems to forget… So I have just decided to work on this again. I have so many files with photo’s of flowers, plants and trees. Maybe I must start identifying them and get a expert who will be willing to help me. What do you think?
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Please feel free to comment on my work. I believe that one can only learn from others and your mistakes.
Potsberg has some of the most beautiful landscapes. I just love capturing them. During flowerseason it just take it to the next level…
In the past there were more colors visible but due to the drought we had the yellow flowers took over and only here and there you stil had patches of purple, pink and white flowers. Don’t get me wrong it is still awesome and I got some beautiful photos with Bontebok and Ostrich. These I will share at a later stage….
Due to the fact that my trigger finger worked overtime I need to split our Potsberg visit in 3 posts….
Thank you for stopping by my blog. Hope you enjoyed your visit. Please let me know what you think of my work. Have a Blessed week.
Yellow reminds me of the sun my favorite fruit bananas and also lemons…
On the spectrum of visible light yellow lies between orange and green.
Yellow is also associated with different feelings in different countries and cultures.
Yellow is the color people most often associate with amusement, gentleness, humor,wisdom, happiness, glory, wisdom, and spontaneity. Yellow can also be associated with negative feelings like envy, jealousy, cowardice and sickness.
In photography you get to work closely with this color when editing and fine tuning you photos.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Please feel free to comment and like my post.
Yesterday while playing ball and taking my photo’s of Ruby for this blog post something very weird and very funny happened. Normally Ruby brings her ball straight to me so that I can throw it again. Yesterday morning she ran past me and when I looked back I just had to take photo nr 2. Sorry Ruby for intruding on your privacy….
We had lovely weather on Monday and yesterday so everybody enjoyed the spring sun and got our dose of Vitamin D for the day. My mom also came out and I went and fetch her a chair so that she can sit down when she wants to. My mom have not even touched the seat and Tekkies jumps up to sit on her lap….
Three weeks back this tree in our neighbors garden had no leaves only branches just look at it now….
Even Tammy decided that it’s better outside than indoors under her blanket….
Okay mom I can we play ball again. Stop talking to Granny and play with me please….. Even when her tongue is dragging on the floor of exhaustion she still wants to play. At this point I put away her ball so that she can play with her four legged sisters…
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…
