Stroll around my garden with camera in hand

Stroll around my garden with camera in hand

Well … hello again! 

I haven’t picked up my camera for ages hence the lack of posts and as this is a photostory blog, a camera is an essential element !  I note the last post was in June!   How time flies !  Life just seems to be rather busy ..  yoga several days a week, weekly grandchildren commitments on a daily basis, gardening etc     Hubby and I took a trip down to the Cape for a few days in November, camera bag included.  A post will follow as I did take some photos of a Stellenbosch wine farm where we stayed and a wine estate in Hermanus which we’ve never been to before (surprisingly I know!!)

In the meantime, herewith several pics taken yesterday once the heat of the day receded.  Heatwave after heatwave interspersed with some rain has played havoc with my garden.  It’s generally looking good though.  Dried up lawn patches are covered with pesky clover weed, so difficult to eradicate and several plants, including a small tree,  have died unfortunately.  Continued water restrictions doesn’t help either
