Who Says we Can't Age Beautifully?



In the wine-growing area in the Western Cape, roses are just everywhere in spring and summer.  It seems that the farmers are in competition to provide the most spectacular roadside shows. This bush was just bursting with pride and showing off so much, I just had to take it picture for all to see. It's clearly a very old bush - just look at those gnarled and twisted limbs - but topped with the most glorious white blooms.  It made me think of a classy, elegant old lady.  Similarly, our cactus is looking very feminine at the moment: she hasn't at all minded moving to our new home.

  1. That cactus must have been fun to move! Very beautiful, both.
