We have suffered through consistent wind for days now – this is the norm for this time of year in Cape Town – and I grow weary of it! I have no joy playing in the garden when the southeaster howls through the town. The wind has a nasty habit of bringing with it flies! I don’t know why! It seems to be a common thing here in Philly! It doesn’t make weather pattern sense – but thats what the townfolk say! The garden was looking parched, so I was out watering the garden this evening and I came across a few bugs and things. Look what the wind blew into my garden. Christine, you have some real beauties! Mine, I hope will match up to yours…

My favourite little helper in the garden!

I don’t think that he is a good guy!

Look, I found a baby chameleon

Oh look, another one! His brother?

A little garden spider – another helper!

This one looks hungry! A moth or a butterfly?

I’m glad there is a good mix of welcome vs nasty!

Happy Gardening xxxx
