Our Week

This week we all learned how to crochet, I am so thrilled because I have always wanted to learn. This is a centrepiece that Jenna crocheted this week for our dining room table.

We were wondering where our chickens were laying their eggs and to our great surprise, when we were out in the garden we discovered that they were laying them right outside our front door in the grasses in our flower bed! What a find….

Kye has had flu this week, so he has not been feeling too well as you can see from the photo, but he made his own bunny out of clay, all by himself…

This is a Hadeda mommy and her baby sitting on our roof, we have so many Hadeda’s in our garden….

This is our Pin Oak Tree in our back yard. It is so beautiful and as you can see, in full Autumn / Fall dress….

I just love these Gooseberries, when their Capes become fragile like this, they look quite beautiful… We have quite a few that are ripe at the moment…. yummy…

Some of the indigenous plants flowering in our garden at the moment, we are nearing winter, the chill in the air in the early mornings is crisp and cold…

We also all worked in the vegetable garden this week, putting new compost into all the veggie beds so we can start our winter planting…. even the chickens were turning the compost…

And most important of all it was our dear Erin’s 10th Birthday this week, she had a wonderful day and here she is opening up her present I bought for her which is a knitted slug that she loved, he is beautiful. I will blogg him and the Etsy shop he came from in my next post….
Have a wonderful weekend everyone….Oh yes and please leave a comment, we would love to hear from all of you….

    Hi Linda
    Thank you for sharing highlights of your week. Your pictures are all so beautiful.
    Happy Birthday to Erin. Hope she had a very special day. I hope little Kye is feeling much better now. I also love the picture of Jenna gardening barefooted – just right. Those hadeda birds are quite something. Cape gooseberries – delicious. Enjoy your Autumn days and your week ahead.
    Best wishes

    Your gorgeous photos make me pine for home… LOVE the Hardeda… how I used to curse them when I was trying to get K to sleep in the early evening and they would fly overhead, yelling ‘Ha De Da!” Funny now that I think of it… you can’t beat nature, can you!

    How nice to see your week in pictures. I hope your little one is feeling better, and Happy Birthday to your daughter! It is so fasconating to see you on the opposite side of seasons. The gooseberry casing reminds me of tomatillos. How do they taste?

    Those white flowers are so interesting, do you know what they are called? What you call gooseberries we call
    ‘ground cherries’, our gooseberries are something kind of like a big golden/green currant. Neat to see different plants in other parts of the world.

    Hi everyone,

    Tammy, I know, crocheting is lovely…

    Hi Sarah!

    Thanks Dawn about Kye, he is feeling much better now.

    Thanks Kelly for the birthday wishes for Erin, she had a wonderful day. I can’t get enough of Cape Gooseberries, they are divine and so full of vitamin C…

    Magiconions, I am so glad I can share a little piece of home with you. Those Hadeda’s are something else, I know, they always sit on my roof and call to each other and Kye is usually asleep at that time and they wake him up…

    Hi Tahara, the chicken egg find was awesome! Let me know when your knitted treasures arrive….

    Onegoldensun, thanks for Erin’s birthday wishes! The gooseberries are lovely, I have bushes growing all over the garden now, they seem to seed so easily! I really enjoyed your post on silk dyes, lovely…

    Lisa Anne, your blog is lovely! Those white flowers are called Lenotis Leonurus or Wild Dagga. They are indigenous to South Africa and are so beautiful! I really enjoyed your post about the bees!

    beautiful pictures of your life halfway around the globe from where I am. It is beautiful the feeling of connection with like-minded folks regardless of distance made possible via internet.

    The crochet work is beautiful! I can only crochet a straight line… ha
