10/08/2018 My patience with our WiFi speed is wearing very thin!
Maximum temperature today 24C, minimum 12C. Rain early yesterday morning, a very welcome 8mm; Dry again today. 12 km/h North-easterly winds with up to 36 km/h gusts.
A few photos from the garden. I have more photos taken today at a new restaurant, but I will see if photos download a bit quicker tomorrow!!! I am averaging 3 to 4 minutes a photo download at present and they are all resized!!!!
House Sparrows - both females (Passer domesticus) cooling down.
Common blackbird, male (Turdus merula).
Viola - they are amazing they have been flowering since early spring.
The first of my cosmos flowers. Note the little crab spider. Possibly Misumena vatia.
Syromastes rhombeus -We seem to have a lot of these around at present.
Mealies in the garden. if you did not live in Africa then you would know this as sweetcorn or maize!
Ready for cooking. They are delicious and so sweet.
