So healthy and strong and lovely to see.

Slowly but surely

Over the past 11 years we have planted over 3000 tress, a lot of which Nick grew from seed, to re establish the indigenous bush on our farm. At last it is starting (in some areas) to create a canopy and forest floor, a little haven for all the hundreds of birds, Bushbuck, Duiker and other forest friends.
The world is not coming to an end, there are millions of bees buzzing in the Tree Fushias.

come for a walk and bring your dogs

a trail of bread crumbs

Today we went down into the forest to mark out a trail path, so you will never get lost. Just follow the pink spots.

in the fields and forests

new finds

There are 4 charity SPCA shops, a Hospice shop and loads of second hand/junkie shops around, some where you need to wade through the junk to find treasure, and others which are full of treasure, but more pricey. I love wading through the junkie ones - you never know what you will find.
The Tretchikoff print is titled Xosa Chief from SPCA R45.00. The vase was R40 and the the others were all bargins too.
Contact me if you need directions.
