A century ago on November 11th the Armistice was signed at the end of the War to end all Wars . Remembrance Sunday sent me looking for an Iceland poppy in my garden to snap. But they have already gone to seed. Instead I found some raspberries.

Elizabeth, visiting from Norway, and I drove to Herbert Baker Street in Groenkloof to see the white jacarandas. They are simply stunning with their pure white blossoms and dark trunks. Strangers stop to share exclamations of wonderment at the glory of our avenues of flowering trees. Truly the city is transformed. I am privileged to have a great old jacaranda in my garden. It must be at least 80 years old.
