Weather Report

Yes Des, just like in Capetown, it rained here today. In fact, a thunderclap awoke me, with a flash of more lightning to follow. The photo is of the view outside our big house.

But later the sun came out, and we had a visit from our personal topiarist. The second photo shows his artistry, just outside our bedroom window...
Hanne went to Spanish Conversation Class and brought me back a nice sprig of Itea ilifolica. It smells real nice!

The view from your bedroom window is really lovely! I'd enjoy seeing more pictures of your garden layout, too. You live in a really attractive complex and the setting is gorgeous. I can see why you opted to put your roots down there :)

It rained on and off all day yesterday and we have more of the same today, but this is our rainy season. I'm glad the sun came out for you later in the day. This is, after all, your sunny season ;)

I love all perfumed flowers, but I believe Itea smells really heavenly. Lucky chap!
