Go out by yourself, face the wind, hold up your head and thank the Universe for this world we live in.
When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.
🐾 Hedgehogs, Chooks, Nature, gardening and other rambles. In summer I always enjoy an early-evening walk on our smallholding. No need to get in my car to find nature, I have 8.5ha right here to explore, always hoping to see the Barn Owl or some Guinea fowl, but always enjoying the Bluegum trees and beautiful grasses and wild flowers along the way.
Hi, I am Maree Clarkson, a watercolour wildlife and conservation artist and Nature-lover living on my little piece of African soil in Tarlton since 1975 (Gauteng, South Africa), in love with life, my chickens, gardening and nature!
🐾 Maybe the reason I love animals so much, is because the only time they have broken my heart is when theirs has stopped beating.

Happy New Year!
♫♫ A thrill of hope,
the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks
a new and glorious morn ♫♫
- Edward Payson Powell
I know it's blowing the same old trumpet, but it’s hard to believe that it’s this time already, that another year has gone by. I never make resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and moulding my life, is too much of a daily event for me.
31st december 2012 - i was one of the lucky ones . 365 days of crazy beautiful precious life were gained . for this i feel blessed
one of my favorite gifts of this year . Robins come to stay in my garden . their trill was the music of summer
I had this in my garden this year…. another few gifts...
This coming year, give peace a chance, let 2013 be a peaceful year to all and on this last day of the year... I wish you the clarity to see that life is the gift
