I thought I would share some photo's of my recent trip to the nature reserve...if you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I love going there.
It was amazing to go there the other day and see the dramatic difference between now and the last time we went which was in December last year. December the pond was still full-now it is really low and empty. In fact I don't think I have ever seen it so low.
December marked the start of Summer and the vegetation was still green, many flowers still littered the dusty footpaths . Now...not a single flash of color to be seen. Not even our aloes.
The shrubbery looks like a herd of elephants came charging through-broken, gnarled and twisted.
Yet even in this state, the reserve remains breath-takingly beautiful. I am always at awe when I go there, feeling humbled and serene, calm.I leave feeling strengthened, new.
I visited in September too, the best time of year to go there. Spring had opened her hands and poured out her splendor upon everything. The new shoots of grass competed with infant blooms of every shade. The oak trees leaves were new, young and a vibrant green. Flowers peeked out from every little nook and cranny.
Here are a few photo's I took the other day.
We saw a snake-have no idea what is was, but looked dangerous-diamond head and nice markings!
Don't forget the sale I have on this weekend, certain good are $1 !
