Hello from a cold South Africa

Hello from a very cold South Africa 🙂

The temperature has plummeted over the past week but our lovely indigenous Aloes are flowering and attracting may birds and insects to our garden. I love them, they are gorgeous plants!

A boy and his dog… K loves Bailey to bits! She is such a sweet girl and has given our other Lab Sandy a boost of longevity. They play for hours and then have long naps together only to resume playing again.

Our beautiful Orchid is flowering again, this plant was given to me as a gift the day Jen was born almost 20 years ago. It flowers profusely year after year and gives us such joy! When it was given to me it was a single bloom with a few leaves at the base but now it has expanded and takes up an entire container.

I am busy with a new pattern for someone, I’m enjoying the design process tremendously and love seeing the development take shape.

We have had to start lighting fires again, it’s so cozy and warm. We’ve collected plenty of wood from our garden during our pruning season, so that worked out very well and is sustainable too.

Oh and this is Bailey attempting to steal my knitting every opportunity she gets. I love her x

    Thank you for sharing. Bailey is a bundle of love as shown by beautiful and adoring K! Your orchid plant is spectacular. So nice to be able to grow aloes outside. It is too cold in the winter in Rhode Island, USA for aloes to survive outside.

      Hi Susan,
      Thanks for your message 🙂
      I love that orchid, we don’t even give it any special treatment, I think it’s just very happy in that spot on the front stoop and thrives.
      Take care

    Your new pattern is intriguing. I can’t work out what it could be. Bailey is lovely – we are in besotted with our new lab too, although I am having to keep my knitting on a high shelf.
