Wednesday 1 September

The first Day of Spring and the weather is glorious! Everything in the garden seems to be screaming out 'new beginnings'. Wherever you look, there is activity and preparations for the new season.

Even Pot Plant Owl is looking happier today. Of course that could also be because we risked all last night, and ventured onto the balcony to fix the fallen branches.

Good Spring news! Our book based on our owl family, called "Pot Plant Owl" is going into e-book format. We've had a number of requests for quotes to ship books overseas. Unforunately, the size / weight of the book, combined with reliable printing costs has made overseas shipping not economically viable. In comes PPO e-book! It can be ordered online, is instantly available and works out MUCH more affordable for the overseas readers. It's not restricted to overseas readers though - South African e-book fans welcome too. Will let you know more when it becomes available.

The other good news is that we've got copies of our "Pot Plant Owl" book to give away to schools in South Africa to go into libraries and / or classrooms for children's education. I think it's important that we demystify owls and allow children to see for themselves how special these creatures are. Contact me if you want to nominate a school to receive a copy of the book.

Back to the star of the show: Pot Plant Owl. Yip - she's sitting. Nothing happening. She winks. She blinks. She sleeps. Wish I could tell you it was more exciting than this today, but she's just in the mood to soak up the sun and relax.

Aren't we all?
