Sunshine Today


It was lovely!

Morning view
Lilies are opening up. This is the view from where I sit in the morning with my coffee. 

Big damn gazania
The gazanias are loving the sun, too! This is a two year old plant, and is truly enormous. Grown from seed, and is just stunning.

Gazania close up shots. The little white specks make me think of bird feathers. 

Hope you have had some sunshine, too!

          • We are hitting winter down here at the moment, and w.ill soon look a bit worse for wear
            It is still bright and sunny but a real nip in the air, and up here in Johannesburg frost looms.
            I have been collecting seeds.
            I normally take around half of what a pod produces and these are in an old Yogurt tub on top of a filing cabinet in my office.
            Come spring I will sow them.
            I have done this before but not with so many seeds.
            Next year I am determined to have the garden smothered.
            We’ll see!

  1. That first photo is wonderful: love the colors and contrast, the bumpy texture, and the dark and light highlights and shadow ( and of course the happy beyond belief flowers.
    Thanks for the close up of the gazanias. Always amazed by the intricate design of nature – really dramatic
    (ands it’s like 104 here today with high humidity from Cindy’s storm rain bands….melting…melting…melting)
