Garfield

Garfield is the mutual friend of all villagers. It’s a stray tomcat and sleeps every night in another place. I also call him the ‘Informal Mayor’ of our village. Never begs for food but always grateful when he gets. It’s not a young tomcat; Garfield needs his sleep between the local adventures. 

Dormancy in and around our South African Winter Garden

People who follow this blog know that we have a fairly unusual garden with merely (rare) succulent plants from all over the world. We enjoy a year-round floral display but also a year-round dormancy. This gallery shows some plants having their Winter Sleep.
