(Napier, Western Cape, South Africa)
Before you know Chateau de Thierry in Napier, Western Cape is harvesting grapes for their small scale production of world class Petit Verdot, Sauvignon, Viognier, Sangiovese and White Muscadel wines.
Of gargoyles it’s said that they keep the evil out. Reason why many old churches have them as an ornament. We have three on our house and yes; we live peacefully.
I love hibiscus. There are about 13000 different varieties of this shrub/tree in the world. In our garden we have 10 different ones. Only a few years old and grown from cuttings. The hibiscusses in front of our house will be shaped into umbrella like trees. Yesterday I took the opportunity to picture flowers of four during the rain.
