Autumn Skies over the Free State

The sun's early morning rays over the golf course last week

I'm linking to SkyWatch Friday which you can visit here

Today is also the birthdays of two very special girls in the Hedges family. Eryn, who is 12 today and her sister, Bethany who is six.

Bethany, six, sharing a special moment with her cousin Abby

I remember the day so well when Eryn was born. She was our very first grandchild and a girl at that. The Hedges only produce sons! So we were very thrilled.

Then on Eryn's sixth birthday, she and Joshua (then three) were staying with me while their mom and dad were at the hospital in another town. I took Eryn and Joshua to Pre-primary school here in Marquard with a birthday cake for Eryn's which she would share with her class mates. When I collected the  two children at midday, everybody (including the teachers) wanted to know if the new baby had arrived yet. Fortunately she [Bethany] had, John had texted me mid-morning I could share the good news! 




  1. A very Happy Birthday to Eryn and Bethany!!! And great moody skies for Sky Watch, Jo!! Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!! Enjoy!!
