Saturday Spot: The Hut…

September 7th, 2008 · No Comments

July 12th, 2008 · No Comments

So this is our nature corner… where we have tried to grow vegi’s but every time we do the local baboons arrive for a feast and pulverize any plant into a pulp – so I have let it go, so to speak. Not to mention that it is midwinter and hardly blooming! Anyway, it is […]
