Cat sniffing jasmine. I’m actually taking these - the jasmine, not the cat - to a writing workshop this morning. Smell evokes memory, and all writing, in one way or another, is memoir. http://ift.tt/WuCjT6

A Black Eagle in flight above the waterfall at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens. The eagles are a famous feature of the gardens, nesting on the cliffs and soaring high in search of prey. Their territory has been severely compromised by urbanisation - the area around the gardens is a mess of traffic and cluster housing and junction malls - but they have managed to make this their home for more than four generations. Long and free may they fly. http://ift.tt/1syGdYg
