After the Rain…




Can you see the tiny Songbird in the bush above?
















A few days ago mother nature gifted us with beautiful rain! We have very cold, dry winters here in Gauteng (Johannesburg) not a drop of rain  for a few months. Somehow, our weather seems to be evolving and resulted in a small cloud burst. We woke up to thunder in the distance, I just adore lying in bed, listening to a storm. It rained solidly for a few hours and then stopped. I ran outside, camera in hand, to explore the beautiful fresh looking world, washed clean before my eyes…

We had a busy but lovely weekend spent with friends and family eating warm soup and homemade bread.

PS I’m having a giveaway on Nicole’s lovely blog Frontier Dreams. I’m offering a knitted pig called Petunia and 8 Mamma4earth knitting patterns, winners choice:)

Wishing you a wonderful start to your week dear friends.

    I must admit, I never felt quite so enthusiastic about rain or thunderstorms, but your photos are gorgeous. We’ve had an unusually wet summer where I live (US). I should open my eyes to the wonder of nature more. It would be fun to know whose nests those are.

    These are lovely pictures. You have so many sweet animals living at your place. I like a good thunderstorm, and we just had one too!
