The world through a macro lens - vivid, singing hues and mysterious, shadowy shapes. From the heart of a Strelitzia to the golden centre of a tiny begonia blossom, I'm discovering a new world of colour and complexity.

More uplifting things I did this weekend : Went for a sunset walk at Milnerton Lagoon, tested my new macro lens out by taking lots of pix of really tiny flowers; walked around the plant nurseries and making plans for spring and summer colour in my city garden.

Walking round Molteno Reservoir

Upped my walk from 15 to 30 mins (yes, I know it's kinda sad) and managed to do a complete circuit of the Molteno Reservoir this morning. Things that made me glad I'd got up : A shining sunny day with a slightly chill crisp breeze; the first blue-mauve azaleas of spring; the sound of little waves slapping against the reservoir wall; and best of all the resident Egyptian Geese with their new brood of ten fluffy ducklings trying out their swimming skills. Parents are extremely protective and somewhat threatening so you have to do a wide circuit as you walk past, but for ducklings I'll even do the extra steps even if the knees display ominous signs of collapsing.

Would have liked to take pix of all the above but no photos allowed.. a threat to national security?

Betty's Bay sunsets, no two the same

Spring is coming to the Cape at last! It's a heavenly day in Cape Town after all the rains, sunshine glittering on every small petal and stem of grass. Visited Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens to check out the new ducklings. The wildflowers are going to be spectacular this year so here's a taste of things to come.
