Early morning, late evening skies in Mwadui

Yesterday morning I was awake and dressed early, so once I'd loaded the washing machine, I took the cats into our private shamba/garden. As usual I had my camera ready and snapped away at the beautiful pink and mauve shades of the newly - awakened sky. 

 Shadow thrilled to be out and about so early in the morning, watches intently for a sleepy/unaware insect to cross his path

 Ambrose gazes wide-eyesd into the distance while Ginger has a blade of grass for breakfast! 

Last night we had friends Rob and Nsia over for a visit we all sat in our garden. Marnitz, the young production manager who lives in the cottage behind our house, joined us as well. When Rob and Nsia left, Marnitz went into his house, while Grant and I walked with our friends to their vehicle in our outer garden. As they drove away, I had a beautiful view of the full moon shining through the trees. So of course, I photographed it. 

A perfect beginning and ending to another perfect day in Africa.

  6. So wonderful to know you have these wonderful perfect days Jo. I could use one now and again too. Today, our 55th anniversary, I went to the nursing home where he introduced me to one of the nurses as his mother . . .
