Johan and Rina, a young couple who live in our street, own three beautufil Golden Labradors. These dogs know our vehicle and hurtle across the lawn against the street-side fence barking like mad when we pass. You see, often Angie, Eddy and Megan are in the back of my pickup and lean out of the window and bark back at these dogs.
This aside, these youngsters also love their garden; Johan is the main gardener in their home. He has beautiful lawns which he mows himself. Shrubs and low-maintenance plants abound around the perimeter. He also has a statue of a Jack Russel terrier in the middle of the lawn. It is only half a statue; the back half. It looks like a dog burrowing it's head in the lawn. We smile every time we pass and see this garden ornament.
When I downloaded photos I took last week, I came across this photo (above) of Shadow burrowing in the flower beds. It made me chuckle as I was immediately reminded of Johan and Rina's porcelain dog in the garden.
While this post is aired today, Grant and I will be on our way to the Drakensberg mountains in Kwa-Zulu Natal. We're off to visit John, Debbie and our other four precious grandchildren. As usual, we're going by motorbike and for us, the journey is part of the excitement of the weekend. I've packed sandwiches, Grant has made a flask of coffee and we'll stop for breakfast somewhere along the way.
As usual, as well, we've booked into a self-catering cottage just a kilometer away from John and Debbie's land so we'll all be able to visit and enjoy the weekend together.
Till we return, do all have a great weekend and be blessed.
