I spent nearly a week with my daughter, and what a wonderful week it was!!!! 🙂
We were busy. She still had to work, but I had a lot to do as well, so the first three days were spent running my own errands, some of hers (ours, actually, as it was for the Big Day!), and spending evenings with her. And then we had the weekend!!! We accomplished SO much, and made beautiful memories along the way. It was a special time.
The first day I was there, she took us ‘picture hunting’. More specifically, she wanted to photograph the Jacaranda trees in Pretoria. Let me explain a bit more. Pretoria is known in South Africa as the Jacaranda City, because of the countless trees lining the streets of the city. It is not an indigenous tree, but it is oh, so very beautiful. It flowers around this time of the year, and it is a spectacular sight!
I know she took a some gorgeous pictures and I don’t want to spoil it for her, but I know we look at things from different angles, so I cannot resist posting one of my pictures.
Can you imagine streets full of huge trees covered in these flowers?
PS Because of my week away, I couldn’t quite manage to stay on top of the new postings, so forgive me if I don’t get around to you.
