  1. Belated happy birthday, Abrie! I’m right behind you, catching up, soon the middle ages, too. I hope you had a fabulous birthday! Did you not advertise (as I did) on your birthday that it was? You’re too shy! Haha!

    This is such an awesome post! I love, love, love the photographs! Super stunning! And I do love the quote! And it is true. The write up is great! I chuckled quietly while reading. So cleverly written.

    Have a blessed year ahead! Hugs. xxx


    1. Naturally a shy introverted person like me do not advertise… I do appreciate the belatedness though (the spelling checker tells me there is no such word as belatedness – well in that case it is my contribution to the English language). Spelling checkers are evanescent!
      I do not understand how a person aged 25 can catch up to me. Thanks for your kind words regarding the writing.

      1. Haha! True! I love your contribution to the English language. I also thrive on creating new words that I hope one day will be widely accepted. 🙂 Bothering with spelling is evanescent. Lol! Joking. Good one!
        AND, thank you. 🙂 Just because 45 is the new 25 doesn’t mean I’m not 5 years away from the middle ages. Hahaha!


    1. Baie dankie. In die berge reen dit meer. Op 11 Mei het dit 50mm gereen aan die Jonkershoek kant van die berg, helaas nie aan die ander kant waar die Theewaterskloofdam is nie. Ons het nie omgegee vir die ☔nie

  2. Het jy hierdie “evanescent” woord nou behoorlik vasgevat en op sy kop gedraai. Jy is ń man wat sy vriende waardeer; ek sien dit en geniet dit van jou. En jy het ń vlymskerp sin vir humor, Abrie. Lekker gelees en geglimlag. Welkom in die middeljare.

  3. Baie geluk Abrie! Vyftig tot sewentig is die beste jare in mens se lewe…navorsing het dit getoon. Perdeby kan getuig daarvan.
    Ek stem natuurlik nie saam met die ronde mannetjies nie…op julle foto is nie ‘n enkele boeppens nie!
    Pragtige foto’s,veral die waterdruppels!


  4. A belated Happy Birthday to you, Abrie! What a wonderful way to celebrate with your friends. You captured the nature scenes beautifully – a perfect way to ring in the new year. Hope it’s filled with great moments like these. You certainly have a great sense of humor about it all! 🙂


    1. Yes indeed. This is certainly just about as perfect a birthday celebration I can hope for. You join a select group in your belatedness (all my blog friends 🙂 ) Thanks I do appreciate and I trust that many moments like these are imminent

    1. Vreemd, maar ek waardeer dit Danie, vndag se blog het geeindig met hier woorde:And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 1 John 5:11 Die woord evanescent beteken verganklike in Afrikaans


  5. I loved this post for so many reasons Abrie….not least of which is your beautiful photography of the flowers and their raindrops. As always you’ve included some wonderful humor and some interesting factoids as well. Your post would also have been a good one for this week’s “friends” challenge :-). Happy 50th – here’s to reaching 100!!!

  6. Congratulations on reaching a wonderful birthday ! The mists look dramatic and beautiful. I visited the Eden Project in Cornwall and there is a section of plants native to South Africa I loved. Rooibos is one. The flowers you capture are stunning. Gelukkige Verjaarsdag !
