Skywatch Friday :

A cold front swept up from the Cape to the Highveld on Wednesday ...




... bringing with it dark clouds ... blocking out our blue skies and winter/spring sunshine ..



The clouds stayed awhile then were blown away by an icy wind leaving us with blue skies again and a wintry day ....

Hello ... I spotted you in the tree while taking photos of the blue sky ...



A Grey Lourie sitting in the neighbour's tree. It's an indigenous tree - not sure what it's called - wild cherry or wild peach. Two treefellers have different views!! It grows very quickly and we have to have huge-hanging-over-our-property branches cut down when they grow over my back courtyard and washline ... tree bares yellow fruit .. tons of it! .. and the birds love it ... my washing doesn't!!!

  1. Nice one! We have a family of Loeries on our garden. P puts out an apple for them every morning - they LOVE it! We have tried other fruit, but no takers!! Apples only and they must be red! LOL!

  2. I wish we had more trees and fruit around my house to attract birds. Maybe I need to put out more stuff or plant some trees. Mmmm.....
