I would like to thank you for your lovely comments and emails regarding Mamma4earth’s 1000 sales, your kindness is deeply appreciated. I have decided to let the pattern special continue until Saturday the 24th of December as a thank you for all your love:) To find out more about the pattern special, you can read this post.

Yesterday Jen, Erin, Caiden and Richard rode a 12 km mountain bike race just north of Pretoria at Babbas Lodge. They had a wonderful time!

There were dung beetles rolling dung all over the reserve:)

Back here at home, my apple is still growing beautifully on its tree. I am so excited about this, let me tell you!

Our Agapanthus plants are in full bloom.

I discovered these lovely mushrooms growing under my Grapefruit tree, amongst the Comfrey this morning.

And, we have a new Sparrow family that has built a nest and moved into the heart of a Fever tree in our garden. The thorns on this tree are huge. I think he has chose a very safe spot to build his nest.

I had to include this photo from Friday morning. One activity Kye loves, is to make himself tea. This is one of my favourite tea pots, it is adorned with guinea fowl and was a wedding gift from Richard’s Aunt up in Zimbabwe.

Tomorrow I will show you the new pattern I have been working on, a farmyard cow:)

Have a wonderful weekend.

    We have thorn trees, Russian Olive Trees behind our house. I thought the thorns on those trees were huge!!! They are nothing compared to yours!!!!

    Your plants/photos are lovely. We are deep in the ‘chill’ here. Cold and hazy….. I wish it would snow!

    I look forward to your cow pattern, as I said on FB, the last cow I knit turned out looking like a bull with an udder. Kristen can testify to this!! It was the funniest most disturbing thing.
