Wow it’s dry out there and as for the dust – all I can say is that I’m so glad I’m not a plant growing close the roads, who are totally choked up with dust. It would be so great if we had a shower of rain just to settle the dust a bit and clean the leaves. Sprinklers on in the office garden are drawing a multitude to birds which ruffle up their feathers against the wet foliage in order to bath, which really makes for a happy moment. The sunbirds are still gorging themselves in the aloe flowers which must be almost all in full flower now. Half of the staff went on their 6 days off today so were back to half our man power – so hope the elephant behave themselves and not fell every tree they find so that the staff left behind can get on with the work at hand.
