Day 335:

The flowers from my 'Yellow Flag' bush (do not know the botanical name) and a perfect ant!

One month to go

I have often taken more than one pic on a day during this challenge and although I deleted a fair amount I did keep quite a lot of  really nice ones and so I have decided to 'change' the rules at this point. For the month of December the pictures posted may not always be a pic taken on the day as I revisit past pics and maybe post those which I would like to share.

Day 333:

What with COP17 on in my city at the moment and the talk around fossil fuels, carbon emissions etc, etc, I thought I would share this pic taken last night.  A very unusually large,interesting piece of coal that came out of the bag for our braai (barbecue) last night.

Day 320:

I have shown some fungi from the garden before but this is the biggest.  This is a mushroom which popped up in the garden a few days ago (approx 6" in diameter) and it looks like the monkeys and birds have been having a go at it ....... hope it is edible!
