But where you can walk and drive there are lovely displays in flower beds and of course the Jacaranda trees.
It was spring in Pretoria when I visited in October last year and I showed you a garden centre, township gardening and the Jacarandas in previous posts and I wanted to take a bit of time to show you some of the lovely gardens of friends who I've been staying with. There are lemons, lilies, palms and aloe and exotic flowers that I'm unable to name and of course plenty of bougainvillaea.
Your friends have a lovely garden; I can't name any of the plants but I can appreciate how nice they are :) Having a lemon tree in the garden is a dream of mine.ReplyDelete
we were over run with lemon trees in South Africa couldn't give them away fast enoughDelete
What a beautiful mixture of plants! I imagine the fragrance from many of them is just as sweet.ReplyDelete
yes the gardens smelt beautiful in SADelete
Ah, it's lovely to see the blue agapanthus in its natural habitat, and good to see some more sunny pictures too :) #hdyggReplyDelete
i really miss the gardens in SADelete
your posts always remind me of miami and make me a little homesick. not for the weather and how flat it was but for everything that easily grew thereReplyDelete
oh yes, things did grow very easily in SADelete
Oh I wish I could grow lemons! Not just for my gin and tonics either...ReplyDelete
What a lovely garden your friends have - thanks for sharing it lovely and joining in again :)
you're welcome, will be linking up a few more South African posts this year, but first I must do the Canadian ones from my trip last yearDelete
I was given a small orange tree for my birthday and so far I have managed to keep it alive inside. It can go back outside when summer warms us again. Not that the oranges are edible though - boy are they bitter!ReplyDelete
I'm almost at the end of gardening here, it was such an effort toast year and now I'm working I'm not sure i have the time for itDelete
