Well the new year has arrived and with it has come some beautiful warm sunny days. I have always said that the first two weeks of January are the best for good weather in the winter time. We have had very little rain this past fall and winter so far, with only one good rainfall so far which occurred on the 24th of December.
Lots of succulents are blooming, as is the Cape Honeysuckle (seen below), and the birds that return each winter are here as well.. lots of red starts, great tits and even a flock of storks have been seen by me this week. I must go birding soon. The almond trees will be in bloom soon as well. All the best for another great year for everyone. Just a few pics from the week. Enjoy
