Speckled Pigeons and a Linky


We have many birds visiting our property daily. On today's post, I'm featuring the speckled pigeons that we always see. They are also called African rock pigeons. I think they look like red bandits.

Blue and White Flowers and a Linky


These gorgeous blue and white (plumbago) flowers are from my garden. I can see them from my kitchen window. I'm not at home though. We are on South Africa's West Coast visiting Amanda's grandparents. She has a one-week school holiday. (Amanda is featured in the hiking photo below.)

Stunning Sunset and a Linky


Here are photos of our most recent stunning sunset. Last week I shared pics of a phenomenal sunset from earlier this month. I have actually captured so many gorgeous sunsets that I am unable to share them all with you. I'm also taking photos of flowers in our garden and birds that visit, so I'll want to make room to share those too. It's getting harder and harder to decide which photos to share each week since I keep accumulating more! Which photos do you enjoy seeing most on the blog - sunsets, flowers, birds, pets, or my family?

Phenomenal Sunset and a Linky


We had a phenomenal sunset last night, Monday, April 12th. The first few photos were taken from my balcony. I put on my walking shoes and tried to get more shots from the veld. I was a few minutes late at capturing the full effect, but these photos show enough to give you a good idea. If I had known that the pastel sky was going to turn neon, I would have left the house sooner. I didn't use any filters to enhance the colors. These pics are straight from my camera.
