30 Day Challenge Barbie's garden Gardening

The 30 Day Challenge – Day 3

Today, I am grateful for colour.

There are times I am blown away by the choice of colours that nature combines. Who would have put purple and orange together or green and yellow? But the beauty of mother nature is that she has not learned it from a book or was told by the Arts teacher at school what colours go together and which do not! I have also broken out of my structured way of thinking and added colour everywhere in my home – my walls are painted red and green and blue and orange!! So THANK YOU for colour – it brings life and love!!

About the 30 Day Challenge

My Two Gardens gardening buddy, Christine, and Cat of The Whimsical Gardener, has invited Garden Bloggers the world over to join in the 30 day challenge of posting a photograph and sentiment of that which you are thankful for – every day for 30 days. We all have something to be thankful for.  See Christine’s and my posts filed under “30 Day Challenge“.

Best roses in town!

Hi Chris, I loved the post you did on the trip we did to Fairholme Nursery, in Elgin. I took so many photographs that day, it took me the best part of the week to download them all, colour correct, crop and file them!  Here are the photos of trip we did to Duncan’s Roses – the most beautiful roses I have seen for sale!  It is worth the trip out of town to just browse around these well-kept and beautifully maintained roses. You can definitely feel the love here and the care given to each and every rose bush.

Duncan’s Roses are well-known in the area and I can see that with the quality of plants and the love that goes into them. They even have ducks and chickens running around in the back garden. Very inspiring, indeed!

If you are in the Western Cape, do take a trip to Elgin, and visit this beautiful oasis!
