September is Springtime down here at the very tip of Africa. Been hanging out in my garden a lot, enjoying the slow shedding of the last bits of winter, and the happy signs of summer popping up everywhere:
Beautiful Indigenous Clivias: happiest in the cool of the shade
Potted Strawberry in flower: always worth the wait…..
From the lemon tree, up a slope full of shrubs and succulents, to the cottage-on-stilts behind…..
These two little eggs belong to a family of Cape Robins who set up nest in our garden shed a few weeks ago!
Strelizia, aka Bird of Paradise flower. Most variants have an orange headed flower. This beauty, from the Mandela’s Gold variant, is golden yellow with touches of blue.
Cape Gooseberries: Sweetly tart and delicious….
Apple blossoms with backdrop of leafy green almond tree
Bulbanella succulent surrounded by ornamental grasses. The leaf of the plant exudes a gel with many skin healing properties.
Pear tree coming into bloom Lemon with blossom Lobelia flowers Granadilla (Passion fruit) A small oasis for thirsty birds
Happy just hanging here…. Calamondin fruit and flowers Sweet Rocket and Violas Last of the winter spinach Baby almonds inside velvety husks
And so turn the seasons! wishing you all a beautiful week ♥

Hi Amanda, its so great to see you back in blog land! You were missed. Lovely to see all the blossoms and flowers. Here in Cape Town the garden is a bit underwhelming, probably because I let the nasturtiums run wild!
Thanks my Friend! Wildly running nasturtiums are no doubt better than a garden full of nothing, so well done you, I say!
beautiful images and lovely to see spring while we advance into autumn here in the UK
