Missing the South African lifestyle with HDYGG?

Too hot to be in the garden, so I thought I'd share some of my favourite pictures from South Africa over the next few weeks seeing as I will back there next month and I can take some new ones.

Our first house in Centurion on the Golf Estate. 

 Over looking the 16th green, viewed from the 2nd floor balcony

 Front entrance to the house

 The yard at the front of the house

 The pool viewed from the 2nd floor balcony

 A lovely secluded little spot, where the kids couldn't find me

 The river at the bottom of the garden

 Looking up towards the garage, a lovely shaded area where parrots nested

There are many reasons I love South Africa and many things I miss about living there and lifestyle and housing is the biggest.


  1. I can see why you miss South Africa! Looks like a wonderful house, garden and views to enjoy.

    1. it was so lovely there and i really didn't want to leave

  2. How different to Dubai! I can see why you miss living there.

    1. indeed it was, wish i'd known about HDYGG when i was still there

  3. Wow - what wonderful gardens and plants. So different to anything I have ever grown.

    1. I really loved that garden and it was pretty much self sufficient
