Beware of the dog ...

... but be really afraid of the cat!  This gorgeous creature kept a wary eye on me as I walked up and down the street, leaning over hedges and peering through gates.

An old Cape wagon - what tales it could tell of times long past.

Dainty and delicate as an iced wedding cake, a pink house with white "broekie" lace and green roof.  The term "broekie" means panties and would refer to the lace edging around the kind of old fashioned garments which little girls would have worn.

Detail of one of the gable of the pink house.

I'm a gable fan, as you may have realised by now.

Also, a door fan - especially of colourful, old, weathered ones like this.  Can't resist asking "what's behind the green door?"

I like the wagon picture the best. It looks like it has been a LONG time since it has been in active use.

Best regards,
