I have been so amazed with the weather we had in May and early June. We had sunny & warm days and wet & windy days as well as snow-on-top of Table Mountain days!!! And this can all happen in one week!! The garden takes a real knock, though! The big confusion happens when the peach tree is dropping its autumn leaves and then, ….out of no where a PINK BUD! A flower??? NO!  I was not mistaken. It was there!!

Then my neighbour wanted to know what I fed my roses!!  I have never had such beautiful roses in May!  We are in early winter now here in the Southern Hemisphere, so this is surprising!! I still have a few rose buds – and it is so cold outside! Global warming?? Anyway, wanted to show you how pretty the roses are in my garden……

Picture perfect!! And they smell so good too!


Then the rest of the garden…..

My Chasmanthe coming out

Calibrachoa still pretty

Passion fruit growing wild!

Trailing over my arches

Beans – my winter crop

Huge bush of young tomatoes

And the two prettiest roses of them all!!! Jessica and Tamsin

– my grand daughters from my fabulous son, Brandon, and my lovely daughter-in-law, Nicky!

Happy gardening everyone xxxxxxx
