Petunia Black

It is seldom that I allow "colour" into my garden. I have nurtured my dream (tiny) garden of all white and shades of green , but, A few weeks ago I spotted a large pot of Black Petunias. I had to have them, n my mind black is not a colour and the dramatic appearance they have could not be resisted!
This weekend, on my regular weekend trawl of auctions and nurseries, I found them! I have planted the and they have a proud home on my deck. I am needing to paint their pots white, I envision these velvety laves cascading over the edge's of crisp white pots! Once that has been achieved I will post a pic! Watch this space!

How to start a Sunday

Sunday morning started with a swim in Saunders Pool. Getting up and having a rock pool swim has been on my "to do" list for ages now and Sunday proved to be the perfect day for an early morning dip. There are few more invigorating ways to start a morning and I could not recommend it more... Now to do this mid week. A dip was followed by a sunny spot at Caprice for breakfast. Cape Town Bliss.

They are all fresh, clean and crisp. Loving them- totally inspired. Here is a collection...

Weekend happiness

Few things beat perfect Sunday weather and a long, lazy lunch outside and at home. Load shedding was completely forgotten as we sat in the sun and feasted.
