THE COLOURS OF WINTER
- Sunday. 10 June 2007
There is a general belief that an indigenous garden is a garden without colour. Looking at these pics I have taken today in our garden, I tend to disagree.
It is nearly the middle of winter and our garden is vibrant with colour.

I am still intrigued by the knob on the Hedgehog Aloe's flower. It definitely looks like a genetic deformity. Can't wait to see whether the next flower also has the same knob.

The Strelitzias are flowering profusely at the moment ....

... and the bees are very active around the Pom Pom tree's flowers.

I'm leaving you with the following words of inspiration:

"The mind can go in a thousand directions,

but on this beautiful path,

I walk in peace.

With each step, a gentle wind blows.

With each step, a flower blooms."

  2. Desire 'n tuin is iets wat ek baie jare laas gehad het, want die hitte hier brand alles dood. So ek geniet jou foto's van jou tuin. Ek wonder hoeveel mense besef dat selfs 'n "tuin" iets is waarvoor ons elke dag moet dankbaar wees.

    Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.
