Nope. It’s not Photoshop. I can only dream of knowing how to do something that cool! In this case, the illusion of miniature comes across as this baby and adult giraffe cross a road in The Kruger at different heights. Happy Monday, friends. May your work week be pleasant, and your problems miniature! 😉 Love, … More Miniature Giraffe!
Kurt came home yesterday with the prettiest little bouquet of cosmos for me. He and his boss stopped after work to pick them on the side of the road near their construction site. I can only imagine the sight of two grown men picking pink flowers on the roadside.
Well, at least at our house, Christmas is partially for the birds. I have been showering our feathered friends here with yuletide greetings: a variety of fruit including apricot, pear, orange, banana, peaches and apples for the fruit eaters; and homemade nectar or sunflower seeds for others. Wouldn’t these birds look just gorgeous in snow? … More Christmas is For the Birds
I almost missed him. Arriving more than an hour before the procession was to begin, I drove around looking for parking several blocks from the procession route, but all was cordoned off by security and police.

But I know some really wonderful parents who do, and this post is for them. Unlike the quite vocal (yet elusive) fox, an … More What Does Giraffe Say?
If you ask my nephew, turtles are freakin’ creepy. I never saw them that way, until our recent trip to Kruger. South Africans call turtles “terrapins” which is also what the British call them, according to Wikitardia. Driving a back road from Olifants Rest Camp to the overlook, we stopped while crossing a little pond. … More Attack of the Terrapins
