Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: Day 1 Potgietersrus/ Mokopane

Two bloggers, nowathome –

and  Far Out of Africa   –

invited me to participate in this challenge. Thank you both of you I accept the nomination. I am going to do two 5 day sessions. One on the last days in South Africa and the other on my first days here in New Zealand.

THE RULES of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo (It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph) and then nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge. Accepting the challenge is entirely up to the person nominated, it is not a command.

I would like to invite anyone to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. It is a lovely way to do 5 days of blogging.

Here is my first photo/story…


Potgietersrus/Mokopane Suid Afrika(2007-2009)

My eerse foto is vanaf my gehuurde tuinhuis se stoepie geneem. Ek het vir twee jaar hier gebly voordat ek na New Zealand verhuis het. Elke lente het die bome in die gesamentlike tuin geblom asof hul nooit weer die kans sal kry nie.

Wikkie gee die vogende beskrywing.

Delonix regia is a species of flowering plant in the family Fabaceae, subfamily Caesalpinioideae. It is noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of flowers. In many tropical parts of the world it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English it is given the nameRoyal Poinciana or Flamboyant. It is also one of several trees known as Flame tree.

  1. The colours on those trees is magnificent!
    “The trees all flowered together as if they wouldn’t get another chance” – beautifully said 🙂
    (I think my Afrikaans is improving 😉 )


    • Dit is beslis. Daar het een reg voor my woonstelletjie gestaan. In somer was dit heerlike koelte en winter lekker oop.
