I was completing the job referred to in the previous post when I received an order from the grandkids to join them on an outing to Illovo Nursery on the South Coast. We haven’t been there for a while, and it was humming. A craft market and live music have been added in place of the previous mini-zoo. I have mixed feelings on this; I loved seeing the birds and animals but don’t like them being caged.
The kids, of course, found a cat to make a fuss of.
We were all entertained by the sight of one of the visitors wheeling a pram holding  a marmoset  wearing a nappy.
Plants galore were purchased and I got a pristine CD of Handel’s Water and Fire Suites.
We also got 60 droppers with which, in due course, I am expected to construct a screen to give us and next-door neighbours greater privacy. I also purchased an Umkomaas-brewed ale and lager to sample.
Kids and I both tried the new zipline. (We enjoy hanging around.) I splurged out to buy each of them a stainless steel straw, complete with carry-bag and pipe-cleaner, and ordered them to give up plastic straws altogether, forthwith.
Then, after our own meal from the restaurant there,  food was purchased to feed the birds and fish. When only powder was left, it was fascinating to see a number of the fish opening their mouths above the surface and scooping while swimming along.

  1. Fish are not really that stupid then are they? Pity you didn’t get a picture of the marmoset in the nappy; would have got my vote for pic of the year! 😛
