My Year Of Flowers (part 6)

Living on the foot of Table Mountain is such a blessing (except for when the South Easter blows through our little house and drives me insane). As you may know, Table Mountain is covered in its own floral kingdom, a unique and very special natural wonder that we are all very proud of. So naturally when the opportunity to bring home a bunch of fynbos came up I couldn’t resist. Of course, I didn’t pick this bunch myself (you can get a whopping fine if you try) but thanks to Woolies we can all have a stunning bunch of our natural heritage at home. Proteas and fynbos make very resiliant cut flowers and last quite a long time.

It wasn’t until I popped the Ollo Clip on my iPhone that I realised just how hairy these stunning plants are. Guess it must be to trap all the moisture they can in the early morning. Isn’t nature so clever?

Well here is the sixth installment in My Year Of Flowers – Cape Fynbos
(All photos taken with my trusty iPhone and Ollo Clip – not bad hey?)

My year of flowers (Part 5)

My Year of Flowers
This past weekend was extra double special, not only was it our 5th wedding anniversary, but it was also my birthday. What better way to celebrate than with flowers. Here is my fifth installment in my year of flowers – gorgeous soft purple roses. Aren’t they just so romantic and special? Perfect!

My Year Of Flowers is going along well. I am onto my fourth installment – white lisianthus. Yes, it is my second bunch of these graceful blooms in as many weeks – what can I say, I love them!
Sadly the stunning red gladies Alexis got me wilted very quickly (sob!). I am not sure if it was due to the heat, or if gladiolus just don’t have long vase lives? Anyhow, the lounge is looking really gorgeous again and I am happy.
