How was your weekend?
I had a lovely relaxing weekend and took a drive into the country to explore a wonderful farm garden and then on Sunday I headed back out in another direction to explore a new town that might be my next home!
Back home, I took my camera and had a look to see what was in bloom in my own garden. I needed the inspiration, since my garden is undergoing a bit of a revamp and it is not looking all that great in places. But of course, Mother Nature rarely disappoints and once I started there turned out to be quite a bit happening!
Sticks of Fire is starting to put on its winter coat of colour.
Hibiscus "Kona" always seems to have a bloom on no matter what season we're in!
A Spider nest in among the clivias... creepy....
I love the pink bloom of the Zimbabwe creeper. It is always a buzz with life!
The Moonflower in front seems not to know that a chill has set in and still blooms profusely!
The delicate pink is so beautiful.
Nature's pantry is full and the birds have a daily feast!
Robin Redbreast takes breather in his nest from feeding the offspring!
The heavenly colour of Plumbago" Royal Cape " is just Divine!
The parent at work...on the way back home with the evening meal...
...and on the menu for this evening.... a worm or two or three...
...and perhaps a berry for dessert?
The double white moonflower's tutu is still pristine...
Smirnoff takes the camera as a cue for his daily dip...
...and a ferocious shake showering all in range...
There always seems to be something to please the senses in the garden. I am so blessed to have a garden. As we head to winter and the rainy season over here I try to enjoy every sunny day outdoors and to do as much of the revamp as possible.
Wishing you all a great week!
Thank you for your company.
I will be joining Wow Us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style
I look forward to your comments... I am all ears...
