My holiday part 1

Going to slowly but surely write about my holiday, cruising up the West coast of Africa.
Part 1 is arriving in Cape Town and staying at the Waterfront. Was very excited about that. Got to the airport hired the car. After checking in the hotel went down to the craft market to do some shopping. Piccie below is of the corridor at the hotel which used to be a prison.
Sunday morning....after a bit of a 'Kerrin' walk walking around in circles to not go very far, found a place on the breakwater to watch the boat come in. Was very windy though which would result in the ship leaving Cape Town harbour 9 hours late due to 55 knot winds.

My Garden

As promised some pictures of my little garden. I am really loving my little garden and it is little only about 5x5 m in size but it is really my first garden. All other houses I have lived in, I have rented so the gardens weren't really mine. The grass is growing well and could do with a good mow and the plants are growing too. Not much to look at yet, but watch this space.

The bigger lupin (I think thats what it is.....not very clued up on names) which is growing very well and is getting it's first flower. Wish I could say the smaller one is growing quite so well.

The hedge as it has been cut. It was originally 6ft like the side fence but it totally blocked the view. It will take a while until it is how I want it but is so much better.

Some of the side garden and the grass.

I'm back

Yes, me again. Been ages since my last post I know. After having my parents visit me, have decided to start my blog again so I can share pictures of my garden etc.

I recently returned from a dream holiday on a cruise from Cape Town to Madeira, which was prolonged by 5 days thanks to the volcanic ash. Going to write about the holiday on here in stages with photos. The had my parents visit me for the bank holiday weekend which was wonderful. Thanks mom and dad for all the handywork around the house.

Watch this space for the first piccies from my garden.
