I am so into FLOWER POWER

My spring pop-up 14 & 15 September (see previous post) is all about FLOWERS
From perfect protea pairs in my pop-up windows
pincushions in solid brass vases
red inca lilies bought from a farmstall nearby
to posies of fynbos flowers

 and bucketsful of Cape May from my garden

I am so into the FIRST SIGNS OF SPRING

When the daisies appear in the middle of my driveway, I know spring has sprung
This sour fig flower is one of the many indigenous delights which reappear in my fynbos garden each year
No formal beds, manicured lawns or irrigation systems for me and my garden
 Just naturally wild and wonderful
