My mother has always had green fingers despite droughts, fires etc.. Her plants grow and grow. With alot of love and of course work. In all the houses we lived through my childhood, I remember we always has beautiful gardens.
Everyone always wanted to get married, have a party or baby shower around the blooms. Obviously my mum always agreed and the parties never ended. Such happy memories for me.
Her current garden is on the Fish Hoek Mountain and she has chosen fynbos and succulents as we have has a very bad drought, yet through the drought each plant was looked after by litres and litres of recycled bucket water from the bath, showers and the water contraption that they installed.
After the most amazing rains we have recently been blessed with the garden is blooming and its September!
Its late 00:59am and I have taken my sleeping tablet so hope this all makes perfect sense, the moral of the story is I love my mothers garden and all the happiness it brings to all of us.
Here are some really beautiful pictures I took on this very sunny day today, oh and whats a garden without cats…
