Flowers and Construction

Tomorrow is officially the first day of autumn here, but it is already feeling like it is now.  It was a chilly 7C when Chester and I went for our walk with a high of only 14C predicted for this afternoon.  The geese are flocking in preparation for their flight south and the one Robin I saw this morning reminded me that I haven’t seen any for several days now other than that one.

My flowers are still holding up under the chilly nights, so I got a picture of them and I checked up on the construction along the river and got a couple of pictures there.

Viewing has been great on the cameras at Africam lately.  Spring is coming there, which means rains and that means more water in the bush.  When that happens the critters will not have to come to the waterholes to get water to drink.  Now is the time to come and watch before that happens.  We will still see critters after that for sure – but not as many.  It will be nice to see the grass and trees turn to green again and the animals get better nourishment.  Then it will be time for the population explosion as babies are born.  🙂
