Time for the Winter flowering aloes

Rain or shine; this Aloe hybrid will flower for months to come. After our arrival here in Stanford, 20 months ago, we undertook a major job by removing a hedge with invasive shrubs and planted the strip along the wooden fence with water wise succulent plants. These all grow nicely.

Always a Feast to watch

I’ve never seen the Danube that blue…..

But the lagoon along our village was this morning… (with a little bit of Photoshopping..)

The Sunset in the Stanford Valley inspired me for this imaginary: The ‘elements’ used are those of an informal settlement nearby (right), the cat of Matjiesfontein, a flying heron, my first photo model Karuna, her eye and a beach boy from Hermanus.

Sunset at Stanford Valley

The pot with gold was tempting…

Between 6:30 and 6:40 this evening (South African time) we experienced this magnificent sky and than it was over. No need for photoshopping. There was gold in the sky. Images as is:

Some views in our garden
