Greetings readers! Week Two of September already and its meant to be spring in our part of the world. But that didn’t happen! Last weekend, many parts of the country were hit by an extreme cold front and there was snow. Even some of our game parks had snow and the wild animals found themselves a tad chilly! Check out this post if you want to read about it: Spotted: giraffes in the snow!
Fast forward to today (Saturday) and it ‘feels‘ more spring-like. The sky is blue with scuttling clouds, the birds are hyperactive and the plants are having growth spurts. Is it any wonder that my shots for this week include many of these things? As I did last week, there are also a few hidden square shots in here for Becky’s Square September with an “In the Pink” theme. See if you can spot them!
I’m using my Saturday Weekend Coffee Share slot to share my Everyday Delights shots (read more about it here). Grab a cup of your favourite hot brew and join me.
It’s so curly
Now that my son is no longer in school, he is free to grow his hair. He and a friend had a pact not to cut their hair for a year. This is what it looks like from the back – so curly!
There are a couple of rock pigeons outside my office window that are always squatting on the window sill – in fact, I’m not sure they’re always the same two, as one pigeon looks pretty much like another!
The rocks on one of our Port Alfred beaches have intricate patterns and shapes etched on them. They fascinate me, although I’ve never been able to find out what type of rock they are to produce such patterns. So for now, I just marvel at them.
Gorgeous light and shadows beneath a dune plant. Shadows and light draw my attention every time!
I’m not sure what these plants are, but they looked magical in the backlit sunshine. I took a short photo walk around the garden this morning to see what surprises spring had for me.
Can you see the small stamens peeking out from the buds at the bottom? They look like little faces. I smiled when I saw them!
I do love the spiral shape – it is so organic (and mathematical!) and it never ends. My travelling companion bought this beautiful pendant made in New Zealand for me as a ‘thank you’ gift. I’ve worn it a few times this week and it has brought back happy memories.
What’s your favourite from this week’s selection?
