Join me this Skywatch Friday at the corner of my street in Brooklyn, Pretoria, South Africa. Ignore the busy traffic; just gaze at that pale-blue sky washed clean by early morning rain. Enjoy the deep leafy green of the jacarandas, their mauve glory shed. Trace the patterns their shadows have cast on the tarmac.
Wishing you just a little bit o' blue sky this Skywatch Friday! This is the same scene that graced my banner in October with purple splendour.
Take a moment to stand under the shrubbery in my garden and wonder at the exotic flower on the banana tree.
The first time the leafy banana tree has borne fruit. Not ripe yet, but I shall enjoy truly organic bananas in January.
Dear Friend, wherever you are, whoever you are, step into my misty early morning garden. It is my secret haven, my safe place, my retreat - but you are most welcome too. Sit down and enjoy the c0lours painted with such taste by the Great Artist. Feast on the mysterious geometry of branch and leaf. Let the beauty of my shady dell refresh you and renew you.
