Post image for Congrats to the Top Two’s!

CONGRATULATIONS to our fabulous friends at SA Venues, along with all the others who’ve made it into the Top Two Finalists of the 2010 SA Blog Awards!

Pity we’re not among them, but BIG THANKS to EVERYONE who voted us into the Top Ten Best Photographic blogs! Here’s a Protea in appreciation of ALL your awesome efforts.

Proteas are special here in South Africa, being our national flower and the name of our national cricket team. Since we’re into cricket season, we may as well celebrate that too πŸ™‚

This one is part of a beautiful bunch of flowers that Dave gave me a few days ago, simply because he’s such a darling. On top of that, he photographed it for me to share with you. Just gotta LOVE this man!! He’s not well today, coming down with bad flu after a lion-heart performance at Saturday’s Xtreme Enduro X, which also sprained his ankles seriously. I’ll post some pics of the event soon, but first to treat him to some TLC . . .

I just love your photos and commentary. The photos prove you don’t need a single word to communicate the awe and wonder in life; and the words tend to make me happy. Your generosity in championing the success of the top two is simply typical of a blog which celebrates life and all its facets.



Naomi September 21, 2010 at 8:49 am

Ah, thanks, Kate, what a wonderful comment!! So kind of you to make me happy!!

Ah, Naoms, there’s no replacing Dave and you in my heart. Hope the exposure brings all sorts of good connections and surprises. The complexities of flowers. Thanks to your recovering sweetie for giving me a great photo to fill me with awe. Again.


Naomi September 21, 2010 at 8:53 am

Thank you, darling Amy!! So grateful for the connections we made on our HOA trip, which have this way of keeping on giving! Will pass on your message to Dave, which I know he’ll appreciate. He’s my walking master class in photography πŸ˜€
