Firstly I would like to say that my thoughts and prayers are with all my friends on the east coast of America, as "Irene" has been making its way. Hope you are all safe and that any damage will not be too severe where you are.
Next I would also like to welcome new followers to my blog. Lovely to have you visiting and do appreciate your comments.
Yes here in South Africa spring is in the air, although today has been rather cool and cloudy, but the trees are blossoming and the lovely early scented flowers are starting, the daffodils are opening, so if we can get some early rains that would just be the ideal prize.
