Weekly Winners :

I must be feeling better … there are lots of photos this week … !!!!!!

.. from buzzing bees in warm winter sunshine ..

… sipping nectar ….

… and gathering pollen from Hypoestes aristata (Ribbon Bush) …

… one bright white Namaqualand daisy …
… an orange clivia sparkling in the sunlight ..
… all this/the above/warm winter days … before the heavy frost appeared ….
…. not just ordinary frost … but ‘black frost’ ….

…. touching the leaves and flowers, turning them black overnight ….

….. and brown …

… and droopy and withered …

… and sad …
But we were warm inside the other evening … watching our boys – Bafana Bafana – play soccer against Uruguay …. sadly they lost 😦

Zakumi and Bradley seeing eye to eye …

… with Connor preferring to cuddle the soccer mascot Zakumi, which stands at OR Tambo International Airport, here in Johannesburg …

.. where Jeanette, the boys and I went on our first time jaunt on the newly launched Gautrain which runs from Sandton to the airport …

Had to add these last two photos of Jeanette and her two sons while we waited for the train to take us back to Sandton …. a first world experience .. and so exciting for the boys, their first train ride …
