A visit with Tamara

24 September , 2011

As always I am about a week behind in my posts…you forgive me right? 😉

Last week Saturday we went to visit Tamara and to fool around in her gorgeous garden. It was absolutely lovely. Great weather, great company, great snacks, healthy Nicola…what more could I ask for?

I only took a few photos, but luckily Tamara took loads too. Wow, hers really put mine to shame. I might have to put “get a real camera” on my next to do list after seeing these.

We’ll start with mine…

On the gate at the entrance there is this enormous eagle…not according to Nicola. She remains convinced that this beast is in actual fact an owl. It lead to some vigorous hoo-hoo-ing from her too, too cute!

Just a few of the stunning flowers Nicola got into.

The one and only Tamara, entertaining Nicola with some bubbles! 😀

Pink terrorist – having a blast.

201109173246Ons more of Tamara…Nicola was fascinated with the red hair. She kept saying “Mooi hare!”. I agree. 🙂

Now for Tamara’s photos – these are really fantastic, you’ll see what I mean…

  1. WOW those photos are really amazing.

  2. those photos are amazing – I’m half tempted to go out and get a “big” camera just for those…

    remember I was all aflutter with “should I, shouldn’t I” earlier this year? Well, I think I will get one (got a good bonus that’s sitting in my bank account unspent) so have to start the research again 🙂

  3. Love Tamara’s photos!!

  4. Stunning photos!!

  5. I loved your visit. We’ll definitely have to do it more often. And Nicola’s a great model – loves the camera and the camera loves her 😉

  6. She’s not such a willing model when I’m taking the photos, I promise you! 😆 I often get the little finger pointed at me with a “Mamma, stop it. Nou!” When she’s in a mood like that i have to wait till she’s sleeping to get my shot.

  7. Oh my goodness, that child is a beauty

  8. Thanks cat! 😀

  9. Such cool photos!

  10. I love them! One of these is definitely going to be my new profile picture as soon as I upload them all over. 😀

Say something...come on! You know you want to?
