Friday, 28 March: Off on vacation

Tomorrow I am off on a week's vacation in Cape Town and environs. Cape Town is where I grew up and has to be the most beautiful city in all the world. You may want to dispute that but wait for the photo's I am going to post on my return! My daughter and son-in-law are kindly housesitting Thatchwick for me while I am gone and will walk the doggos and feed the budgies and the garden birds who are accustomed to regular seed and fruit. Unfortunately Tristram usually chews his leg while I am gone. A bit like a child biting their nails out of anxiety. But all are in good hands!

Here is a bunch of Thatchwick roses picked this morning for you to enjoy during the next week.


I shall be back on 6 April! Keep well and be happy!

Thank you for leaving us with your lovely roses to enjoy! Hoping your vacation will be wonderful and really looking forward to more fabulous photos. I know Cape Town is gorgeous from friends who have visited - perhaps I'll see for myself someday.

Enjoyed reading of your lovely family Easter traditions - all looked scrumptious and so pretty.

Hope the doggies and birds will stay well - know they'll miss you.
