Festival of Leaves: Week 10

cropped-logofestivalofleavesI see this is the last of a very enjoyable series on the theme of leaves

to see other entries visit the blog of verena


Aeonium arboreum

The leaves are arranged in a rosette and create lovely and interesting colour in a garden.  Because South Africa can have lots of very dry spells, succulents and other drought resistant plants are very  popular in our gardens

Festival of Leaves: Week 9


In the southern hemisphere summer is very eminent and the temperatures are rising very rapidly.  We were away for a long period and came back to a very neglected garden.  It took some time to nurse the plants back to good condition. Slowly but surely they start to show their appreciation.

This week I would like to show you my husband’s fig tree
