Photo catch up post – pruning fruit trees with Oupa

15 September , 2013

This caused great excitement for Nicola! We had our hands full keeping her away from falling branches, and she absolutely refused to go inside where it would be safer, because Oupa needed her help, don’t you know? ๐Ÿ˜‰


Diablo also keenly observed proceedings and moaned a bit about the snipping of “his” tree. He is a very furry fruit bat and picks his own peaches, apricots, plums, strawberries, avocadoes,ย pomegranite blossoms and strawberries throughout summer. We really only get to eat whatever he can’t reach.

He is really very patient with her.


Someone got bored with the tree cutting business and made a “fire” to braai on. I was warned repeatedly NOT to touch it because it’s hot and it will burn me! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Glad to see the things I say are sinking in some days.





  1. The trees that need to be pruned… and the Braai fires that have to be made to make the pruning so much easier…

    • She’s a very eager helper… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. i love it when they tell us things we tell them…. until it’s not so fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh I get to hear myself a lot! I know exactly what you mean.

  3. Diablo is so fluffy…must the heaven to hug him. She has such a wonderful imagination.

    • If you can get him to sit still for a moment, yip. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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