As mentioned in our previous post, we are currently in Cape Town while Berto is familiarizing himself with his new job. We are staying with friends for the next two weeks in a beautiful and peaceful suburb of Cape Town.
There are lovely gardens in this neighbourhood and I have taken a couple of morning walks to explore the area. One garden in particular have made me stop in my tracks. While admiring the garden, the owner came out to meet us. I have asked him whether we could take some pictures and he was more than happy to show me around.
(Our friends’ son accompanied me on this walk and while I enjoyed a great conversation with the owner, he took most of the pictures).
Though we had a hot and dry summer behind us, this garden is luscious and green. The owner, who build this house 28 years ago, has the availability of water from a borehole … meaning they enjoy their beautiful green garden all year long!
There are also several hibiscus trees in the garden and we enjoyed looking, touching and smelling them.
The owner mentioned that he is busy replanting the roses, but we still managed to find a few roses in full bloom.
It was such a treat to visit this lovely garden and I’m glad I could meet the owner as well. He is very proud of his garden … and rightly so. I do hope you have enjoyed the splashes of colour too.
