Friday 3 December 2010


It snowed overnight (just a little), and then started again at eight o clock this morning. Five hours later and it was still going strong.

It gradually eased a little and then, at around 2.30pm, it stopped. The sun came out and this little fellow took the opportunity to grab some lunch.

Forty minutes later, guess what...

You guessed right, didn't you!


  1. Your pictures are marvellous!! They remind me of the Christmas cards we used to send and receive when I was a little girl (growing up in Southern Rhodesia, later on, South Africa) where those magical scenes were so far removed from our own experience of Christmas - stiflingly hot, humid days - but we still went the traditional Christmas meal route, with all the trimmings in those days (people just did!) Now, we've all got wise to it and hugely modified both our expectations of Christmas and the types of food we serve (braais or cold buffets!).

    Absolutely love the English Robins! Our Cape Robins are actually members of the chat family and not true Robins at all, but they reminded the early English Settlers of their much loved little feathered friends back home and so the name stuck.

  2. Ditto to what the previous reader said - you'll have to save these for the day you make your own cards.

  3. Oh, I am so totally jealous! That is just plain beautiful. I don't know about you, but if I was that bird, I would have been wishing I had put on my shoes. Brrrrr!!

  4. Wow, some very good shots. Very impressive.
