Its Spring! The rains have started and the clivias are in glorious bloom. It is now light when I wake up a six o'clock and the birds ! Try sleeping through the early morning arguments of the red billed woodhoepoes and the manic calls of the barbets.Then of course there are the ever present hadedahs - the sound of Africa in my mind and the understated cooing of the doves waiting to be fed. This collage is a reflection of all that.
