In The Garden

Just a couple of pictures from my garden.  The sasanqua has nearly finished flowering but this bud with the rain-drops caught my eye the other morning.  My stepping stones have been in place for a long time and the grass has thickened up so much that the stones now appear to be sunken into the ground.

Early Spring

It is not quite the shortest day in the Southern Hemisphere but numerous blossoms are already out.  The small white blossom with the red buds I think is a hybrid seedling from two other flowering trees in my garden.  The pink blossom is called Geisha because of its lovely perfume.

Autumn Fruits

One thing about autumn is all the lovely fruits that are available - apples, persimmons,mandarin and feijoa.  The top picture is of the last of the Chinese Quinces before they fell off the tree.  They are remarkably large and have a wonderful perfume.

More Pictures of Henriette


Wayne Clark, the owner of Henriette, gave a very interesting talk at Duart House about the old steam engine's history.  The other pictures show the wonderful restoration of this Ransoms, Sims and Jefferies steam engine.
