Botanical water colour workshop

Herfswind draai . . . en waai
die droe blare alles netjies bymekaar. 

Hierdie was begin by die werkswinkel aangebied deur die Drakenstein Kunsvereniging. By die werkswinkel het ek gewerk net aan die 4 blare (protea- en olyfblare). Die aarbei- en malvablaar het later by die huis bygekom.

Persimons -- 'n stroopsoet vrug met die helderste oranje kleur wat herinner aan laat herfs.

Die bome by Babilonstoren hang vol daarvan -'n mooi gesig.

Father's day

Father's day started off with a healthy breakfast. As it is a windy rainy day we had breakfast before the fireplace. Lize made the fire and breakfast while I attended to the animals and  Claude wake up to ease into the day in comfort.

After breakfast I started on a hoody for Lize. About a month ago she asked me to make her one. She ordered a navy one and a grey one. Yesterday we drove to Somerset West to buy some fabric. As we drove back we took a picture of the sunset. It was a beautiful day.

Garden therapy

All a teenager (girl) sometimes need is some garden therapy to discover some things of herself and life around her. It is a sunny winter morning with an icey edge, no running water and the living is easy.
