Blue Bindweed and a Linky


These flowers make the prettiest groundcover. I love seeing them in my garden and in other gardens around the neighborhood. They're called Convolvulus sabatius, Convolvulus mauritanicus, blue rock bindweed, or morning glory. You can read more about them on Gardeners' World.

We've been having staggered power outages across the country called loadshedding. Years ago, our power provider, Eskom, was warned to update their power plants, predicting the problems we've been having these last few years. Today we had two power outages, usually lasting 2 and a half hours. It doesn't happen all the time but it happens enough to be disruptive. I feel sorry for business owners.

Lavender and Kiss-Me-Quick with Linky


The lavender and kiss-me-quick are flowering like crazy and adding so much color to the back garden. Hubby tried to get rid of the latter, which is an invasive plant, but it won't stay dead.

Soon it will be swimming weather as we head into summer here in South Africa. My kitchen window looks down on this part of the garden, so I appreciate the pretty pool and flowers.

Two Types of Irises and a Linky


Today's featured flowers are wild irises and typical irises. I don't think we planted the wild irises. They are probably living up to their common name and grew wild. The scientific name is Dietes and they are indigenous to South Africa. I also have two Cape Sparrows on the fence.

Last Saturday we celebrated Samantha's 21st birthday. You can check out the photos on 1camera1mom.

Cat in My Garden and a Linky


We are heading into summer and my Indian hawthorn is in full bloom. I took these photos last year and never shared them. Isn't Prince the most handsome cat? If I'm in the garden taking photos, there's a good chance he's nearby. I'm also sharing flower pics on 1camera1mom, including Indian hawthorn.

September's Best Sunrises and a Linky


I went through all my sunrise photos of this past month and chose the best ones to share with you. I think there are about eight sunrises here. Some are bright bold colors and others are soft pastels. I love them all. I didn't add any filters. These photos are straight from my camera. The view is from my balcony.
