Some more of the beautiful pics I found, that Van Zyl Taljaard took! This young man has talent and a 'feel' for his subject!

Hi there everybody!

I was just browsing through some of my photographs and found some that Van Zyl Taljaard took of the same farm at sunset. They are amazing and this young man  has talent. Please enjoy them with me.....

Hello again everybody!

I trust you are all well?

Seeing our friend Giaan again today reminded me of my Blog and my neglect thereof! My apologies!!!
I have not finished my story of his beautiful farm and pics.

Good morning once again!

We are still visiting "Ceylon" and enjoying the old sandstone buildings!
Below is the old barn which could be converted into a beautiful wedding venue.

Some old milking sheds

During the course of the weekend I took my camera and went for a walk down to the river and in the long grass I came across these bones. They  could possibly be those of a young calf or sheep.

The day became extremely hot so I decided to head back to the farmhouse to enjoy a cold drink with good friends and company.

Take care and see you soon.
Hello again everybody! It's almost weekend.

There's something about this farm that we visit, that I love so much! I think it's the tranquility and wide open spaces that the Free State is so famous for.

Good morning everybody!

I trust that you had a lovely weekend and Valentine's day? Were you spoiled on V day or was it just another day for you? Whatever your choice of day, that's fine; as long as we are able to celebrate LIFE!!! We are alive and that's so special. I must add that I received a huge tray of my favourite chocolates......Ferrero Rocher!!!

Anyway, to continue with my farm visit in the Free State.

I love the old sandstone buildings and trust that they will be preserved for many generations to come.

I think this old barn would make a gorgeous wedding venue.

Bales of hay

thanks for stopping by. See you soon.

I am guilty, guilty, guilty......... of what you may ask???????? 

The answer..........

for neglecting my Blog!

Don't ask why, please. As you may know;  LIFE happens! Our lives can change in the wink of an  eye! 

I have missed my Blog and thanks to my beautiful daughter, I am back on again. She has inspired and encouraged me to pick up the broken threads and make a start!! Thanks Ney!

Anyway, there is always something good and beautiful that we can look forward to during the storms of our lives.

I have met some beautiful and amazing people over the past year. Visited a farm in Excelsior in the Free State and even attended a few hunts there as well. I am not much of a hunter myself, but love attending the hunt and time spent in the bush, savouring our beautiful nature and wildlife.

I will still introduce you to the Lord and Lady of the Farm, Ceylon, but in the meanwhile, here's a peek at parts of their garden and old buildings.

This building has been turned into an old garage.

See the letterbox in the centre of the door! Just love it!

Well, that's all for today. Hope you are as happy as i am to be back on line. See you tomorrow. Take care and God bless!
