Went with local ladies to collect some grass to make grass mats called ICANSI in Zulu. Left home at six bells and enjoyed the sunrise, as well as the short walk to the out skirts of Khula Village. Took a few pics of the outing, but enjoyed the water a lillies most..

Cutting grass is first step, next to clean and prepare, the dry out, then weave into a mat....

WATER LILLIES on a pan in Khula Village

Went collecting IKHWANI to make grass mats with Nelisewe amd Nana. Nana will be working with me to market the mats and pottery made by Ukhamba crafts in Khula Village KZN South Africa.

Remember that grass mats can not be exported, as they may have bugs or bug eggs, so this is only for the South African market if you are interested in grass mats or local hand made pottery give Nelisiwe a call on 079 398 5975

Hibiscus calyphyllus

The Lemon-Yellow Rosemallow is a large shrub that is loved by a number of insects. This was found in a hollow near a stream, well, not just any stream but the Groot Marico River, in the North-West Province. They are apparently frost-hardy and pretty resilient.

Although indigenous gardeners in South Africa often think of planting plectranthus in areas of shade, don't forget to think about planting the hibiscus, which includes the malva family. Remember, too, that you don't have to plant just one plant, in many instances, they make a fine array. We have a tiny forest hibiscus which is delicate and pink on slender single stem, but now that it has produced oodles of babies the make a fine show en masse.

Motivation as discussed by +David Amerland 
Motivation

The things that drive us are never the things that we assume will. In every situation, at some point, we need to find the path to what is really important. When that happens we always revert to core values that stem from our identity.

These are some of the issues I explore in The Sniper Mind (https://goo.gl/z6sxHz) currently at 36% off for hardbacks, for pre-orders on Amazon.
