An outrageous lizard

Have fun with your loved ones

I spend my days chasing my tail and for far too long I have delayed taking my boys on a real holiday, always waiting for the right time. Well the right time never comes. You actually just have to make it happen. So last week I chose to ignore busineviagra no prescriptionss and domestic pressures and I took my boys on a real holiday. Their early years were spent in the bush but circumstances have relocated them to the city. I took them back into the bush, to my...

Springtime with ice plants

European Heathers

Today I take a step out of my comfort zone! Earlier in the day my friend Patrick Verbraecken from Belgium sent me a photograph of a heather that he had encountered on one of his walks.

So much for the most powerful jaws

It is well known that Spotted Hyaenas (Crocuta crocuta)  have the most powerful jaws of all land animals.

Leopards galore

Enough about the magnificent Cederberg for the meantime. Currently I am in The Timbavati and my adventures here warrant some stories too. So while we are on the subject of Leopards . . .

It was 14h00 and hot and I was not expecting to see much. As I was...

Over the Krakadouw Pass

We departed from Heuningvlei passing beautiful sculptured rocks en route to the Krakadouw Pass. You may recall a previous post ("Once was famous" - May 2nd 2011) in which I spoke about the tremendous variety of colour forms seen in Protea repens flowers. On this walk we saw a colour variety that I have never seen before. The bracts are white but the stamens & anthers are red. The contrast is extremely beautiful. While descending the western side of the pass we saw this beautiful Lachenalia. The genus Lachenalia...

A blessed forgotten village
