“I speak of Africa and golden joys.” William Shakespeare.
I speak of a time of abundance, a time of plenty and a time of growth. It is a time for learning, it is a time for spreading seeds and a time for sharing. Summer is in full flight and it is a time of plenty. It was a week filled with an array of colours, rain, sun, birds, flowers, insects, cats and chameleons. One that flew by faster than any other, and as we approach the festive season, soon to have our bellies filled with cake, have a quick look at the week in pictures.
