At night

Recycled plastic water bottle butterfly garden stake, not quite the ‘glow-in-the-dark‘ I was hoping for. However, I have sorted the various paint layers to still give a shimmering finish to the butterflies.

The mural will take 100 butterflies per square meter, and the mix of small and large ones may need a bit of juggling. With 7 cut out of each bottle, I will be going through a fair few!

Great diabetic sensitive Italian challenge dinner. Anti-pasta platter. Keto gnocchi with sage butter and spinach. Deconstructed Caprese salad. Osso Buco with cauli noodles. Keto tiramisu. Which, having been assessed as ‘scrambled eggs with clusters of salt’, has been rescued by Terry’s version that is scrumptious!

Gaps between the storms that have pounded our senses and driven a Border Collie to distraction. Beautiful light on the aloes at Steenbok. Magestic against the grey, storm tossed skies.

The portrait, slowly taking shape. Too much ‘mush’ while the paint dries, will I be brave enough, the question?

Town dark with load shedding. Lagoon reflecting the fire-fly lights of the fishing boats. Magical.

  • Love the butterflies, especially in the dark! So glad your small cheetah face has found a home. Very much like the new one too. Now for the giant canvas cheetahs . . . .
