This means that I have to, every now and then, go outside to just remind myself of the beauty surrounding me. Yesterday I did this, and this is the picture that greeted me (while standing in amongst all the drains).
Typical winter lawns,
another drain, "Karee" trees, and dry Bushveldt in the background. This picture, with the blue sky as backdrop and washed in glorius sunlight, reminded me why I love my pinpoint on Planet Earth. I could not resist this photo of the sun through the green leaves against the blue sky.
We are in midwinter, but the Bushveldt never gives up. Grow, it will grow, as this tiny bit of new life on an old branch proves.
On the way back inside, I had to pass the hated drains again.
Hey wait! What is that? Those little yellow spots next to the hated drain?
Moral of the story? In the Bushveldt, even drains produce beauty!
