Spring has sprung here in the Cape

The flowers are blooming and the girls are sooo excited for summer to hit because that means strawberry picking, cherry picking, beach, picnics and generally being outside all day long πŸ™‚

Alhamdulllah we have a peach tree which we have been observing though Autumn, Winter and now Spring where they have been following the life cycle. the blooming phase was so beautiful and now we can see the tree bearing fruit.

The girls are manic tree climbers and love being outside πŸ™‚

See if you can spot the little monkey?

Alhamdulillah it is a real blessing to be able to enjoy safe, halaal, outdoor fun within our own space because as beautiful as Cape Town is… the fitan that comes with Summer is truly unbearable! We have to be so selective of where we take the girls so as to lessen the exposure to the nakedness! Yaa Allah protect us from the fitnah of summer, everywhere you turn u see ‘auwra!

We have a few select spots where we can take them where we know not many people go like the nature reserves where you have to pay entry fee and they limit the amount of people so you can enjoy the space without it getting overcrowded.

But then we need to be careful we don’t crowd the inhabitants! πŸ™‚

Kirstenbosch botanical gardens are also a favorite place for us to visit.

But I have yet to find a place where I can swim in the ocean!! Insha Allah one day πŸ™‚

    Masha Allaah so wonderful! I understand what you say! Being in a Muslim land sometimes we are so scared to go out in summer to certain places like the beach I can understand and land like yours!

    Hey you are getting ready for summer while we are getting ready for winter! Allaah is indeed the controller of affairs!
