During our nature walk in our garden yesterday, Jenna and Erin discovered these Millipedes, they were quite taken with them and so we found out a few interesting facts. There are about 10 000 named species of Millipede and the millipede that has the most legs has 375 pairs of legs. The longest known Millipede was 1.8 metres or 6 feet long. We studied them for a while and then they crawled off on into the garden again.

There were many preparations yesterday for Guy Fawkes and while the bonfire was being prepared the heavens above were putting on a marvellous show of colour, I had to capture it on film. It is the kind of colour, that when you look at it, it moves deep within you so that you can actually feel it filling your soul…

Once the sun had set the clouds took on a beautiful hue of white and charcoal grey, quite breathtaking…

Our bonfire that Jen, Erin and Kye built… Caiden was so ill yesterday that he missed out on building the fire, he feels a little better today though. My sweet boy…

Later, we all sat around the fire and sang songs, roasted marshmellows and made smores, soon afterwards, the skies opened and wonderous rain poured down…

My new Winter Pegasus horse…
Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hi dear friend
    Looks like you all had a fantastic celebration around your fire. I hope Caiden feels much better now – poor guy to be feeling so sick. Your pegasus is beautiful! Such amazing evening sky photos – so majestic – only in Africa…
    We love chongololos!!! I will show Sol the pictures. Lovely to see pictures of them. In fact we even found a tiny, tiny one in our sandpit here which surprised us – the first and only we’ve ever seen here. Have a lovely week.

    Lovely photos, m’dear. I especially loved the drama of the charcoal and shadow shades. We don’t do Guy Fowkes over here, and my husband’s name is Guy, which makes it awkward to think of the hanging and all – but I long for a bon fire on one of these coming-on-chill nights, and a sing and roast. I love dipping into your life. It’s like having a beautiful dream. And of course, anything horsey you do leaves me sighing in envy and covetousness –

    Hello Dear Lindiloo

    I am stopping my knitting for a few moments to visit your blog today. I now have a shoulder pain that just wont go away. I am sure its due to many days of hunching over my needles. I do love your pegasus horse. I am glad all the kiddies are feeling better.

    have a great weekend bud
