On Saturday, Alphas stood in as day askari for the Guest House on Edward 's day off. He came into the garden to ask Michael something while the latter was washing the dogs bowls at the outside tap. Of course, the pups were thrilled to see him and he played with them for a while until he left again.
I also recorded this video to show my friend, Gattina of Writer Cramps that even though we'd woken up to a thunderstorm earlier that day, the sun rose bang on time (6.30am) and the weather was perfect all day.
To all the my friends in the Northern Hemisphere who are in the middle of winter, please take a minute to walk through my East African garden with me, listen to the bird calls and the sounds and activities at the beginning of a day in a mining town.
Here's wishing you all a wonderful new week in 2015!
