Black and White Wednesday Photo Challenge

Winter…
This photo really does sum up the weather we are having here in South Africa at the moment. It is really cold and bleak. Our homes really aren’t geared for this colder than usual weather so our fires are burning in the fireplaces. It hasn’t been this cold for the last 15 years, roll on Spring…
Today was also our knitting group morning. We haven’t all met up for quite a few weeks so it was wonderful to see everyone. We all chatted together, laughed, we were noisy and loud and of course we KNITTED! I really feel very blessed to know this amazing group of women. We share our stories, knitting techniques and our friendship…
Take care
Linda

    here’s hoping you stay toasty warm through this cold spell and that the sun is warming you through sooner than you know. 🙂

    Gorgeous photo, Linda. It really does say “winter”. I tried to join your b&w challenge today but couldn’t quite work the settings on my camera to get a black and white shot, but did post my attempt at it.

    You know. It is so funny to see your header (which is beautiful by the way) and your photos of winter….. as we are in the dead heat of summer here!

    As it is starting to heat up here I think sitting by your fire sounds lovely!

    Hi Linda,
    I just love black and white photography what a beautiful photo..
    I also go to a knitting group, just a mile down our gravel road to my homesteading friend’s little off grid home – such a peaceful, fun time.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Warm wishes, Tonya

    Oh! now that has just reminded me to go looking for some black and whites like said i would last week! I’ll do it right now. How is the glorious smell of orange oil in your fireplace? x

    I think that your B&W photo captures the starkness of winter beautifully. And, thanks to your inspiration, here’s mine…

    We always think of Africa as being HOT but I realise you’re pretty far from the equator in SA…funny to imagine you cozying up to your woodstove when we pray for a break from the swelter! But, in all seasons, we are together in mothering, community, and of course, knitting!

    How lovely to have a nearby knitting circle. I wish I had something like that to keep company in the cold winter months especially. Is it technically spring in South Africa now? It’s really interesting to get glimpses of what the weather is elsewhere in the world.

    Dear Shannon,
    The citrus fragrance is wonderful! Thanks so much for joining B & W Wednesday:)

    Dear Wabi-Sabi Wonderings,
    Your B & W photos are amazing! Thanks for taking part:)

    Dear Earth Mama,
    Our knitting circle is wonderful:) We learn so much from one another:) We are still in the thick of winter here at the moment, I can’t wait for Spring in September at least it will be warming up. Your seed swapping sounds amazing, I wish I lived closer to take part:)
    Take care
    Linda
