My last post was about dear little Tigger who was about to undergo surgery. He came through it very well and is still convalescing at his foster gran's house. Emily says she'll take him to her home in the township on Monday.

Chappie, our [obese] South African cat, is the reason why Tigger is ensconced in the bathroom while convalescing. She is totally unsociable when it comes to other animals. The dogs are very wary of her and as Tigger has such a gentle nature, I'd rather keep them separate
As mentioned above, I've spent lots of time outside with my garden helpers. They are actually wonderful men who continue to work without supervision - for several months at a time - during my absence. Recently we've had an abundance of rain in the Free State which was very welcome. This, in itself, motivates any gardener to dig in, turn over and add compost to the shrubs and existing flowerbeds.
I hope you're all having a great weekend. I'll be back tomorrow with more photos of our last weekend in South Africa.
