Annointment From a Hadeda Ibis Nest

Wordle 375

Hadeda said nix on tricks,
So he built his nest with sticks.

Eggs sway in breeze on misty day

Attentive parents drive cats away

Hatched child (or chick) in home movies features

Won’t sing, but runny tum these creatures —

Find the corn set out today

Sent back down in a gooey spray!


I am con-sultana a lot of writers soon in raisin currant matters of grape importance.

That is to say that during November I will be officially launching four major locally  published books by a brilliant selection of overseas authors (plus one of my own), and running five writing workshops at our local library.  I will also be participating in a joint launch with another local author, organised by the District Six (not Cape Town’s one) library region in Durban. The publicity laid on by the libraries has started very late (only in the newspapers today) so I hope the local community notices!

Oh yes, I also have to do my President bit on Saturday for Durban and Coast Horticultural Society’s annual Garden of the Year Competition prizegiving.  I still need to type out a number of the reports . . .

No wonder my blogging is a bit scarce!

    Sounds like a lot of spinning plates atop to personal and family matters. Good to keep busy, eh?
