"taking in a deep breathe of thankfulness and gratitude at the end of a day, for a life filled with many blessings........"

 as the sun sets and the Zambezi turns golden, its bath time for the woman and children........(hope those crocs stay away!)

the golden hour with a chilled glass of Lagostin verde.........mmmm bliss :)

so much activity in our part of the world once the rains arrive.........

 the busy harvester ants filling up their burrows - it's literally "making hay when the rain arrives!"
 baby animals of all kinds being born
 the busy busy dung beetle, whose eggs are inside the dung ball  (which is made by rolling along and collecting the animals dung along the ground)
 the glorious flamelilly.  Zimbabwes national flower, so holds many memories for me.........
