The flowers are here!

Cape Town is in bloom at the moment and despite the cold mornings, it’s starting to feel a lot like summer. Take a look at these beautiful flower patches, taken near the Waterfront earlier today.

Spring has sprung!

We’re having glorious weather in London this month, so into the garden we go for the start of this year’s planting: seedboxes all planted up and safe in the greenhouse in case the temperature drops at night; a luminous Helleborus; a couldn’t-resist-it Rose and Ivory Aquilegia (sorry for the poor quality of the photo): and a brand new tall tree fern to keep the short one company. And just for fun – a closer look at the wall behind it of the piece of shale with the pic of the Bluff painted on it that we carted all the way over here with us.
