Callistemon in our garden for the Floral Friday challenge.

Although past its prime this Callistemon has been flowering for some time now and is flourishing in an area which is difficult for plants to grow.  This morning a visit to our local nursery saw two more white Callistemon destined for this part of the garden.  Hopefully this time next year I will be able to photograph some white Callistemon in our garden.

But I did find a trio of zebra happy to share the limelight.

Finally, you can almost see three motor vehicles in this picture…oh, and three cats as well.  It was an amazing experience.  The vehicle in the foreground is the ‘other’ of our safari vehicles.  When our turn came we had the opportunity to photograph the lions they were about ten to fifteen metres from us. They had moved off the road by then.

Unexpected weather

During the course of preparing my first unexpected post, we had a few showers of rain…

..some thunder and a down pour or two which in this case…

…was too much for the spouting/gutters to handle.

Both sides of the house suffered the same problem….too many down pipes and not enough outlets.

So for  few minutes water ran everywhere.

Way out west I had one loyal pooch who was not going to give up the day bed no matter how wet she became..

..while on the east side, no matter how hard rain belted into the fish pond, Soxie was reasonable dry and comfortable…although totally out of focus in this shot!
