The Cherries in Ficksburg . .

– 6 centuries of old toppies (at least) guarding these lovely cherries in Lesotho –

Oh well, I made the most of it by looking for Vrystaat poppies. At least some of them were unaccompanied:

And the local birds were also obliging:

Saturday Supper was delicious. Cafe Chocolat hidden in a massive pile of priceless collectibles: or stuff someone threw out with relief:

We had a hilarious mixed message, crossed wire and different-planets outcome when I enquired about birders who might know where to watch birds around Ficksburg. The only ‘bird guy’ they knew was Johan and he replied to my sms asking where we could watch birds in the Ficksburg district thusly (translated):

Hey! Jong, in Ficksburg it’s only me and Martin and Willie. But its breeding season now and I don’t take people through my cages now, only end-January again.
