Travel theme: Foliage

Ailsa’s theme this week is foliage. It’s Spring here in South Africa, so here are a few photos to show you what’s happening in this part of the world.

The first two were taken in my daughter’s garden  in Johannesburg, when we visited her a few weeks ago. The lemon tree was bearing its first fruit.

The Begonias were very perky indeed.

On Sunday in my sister’s garden, the Hibiscus were doing their thing, somewhere amongst all the the foliage.

The Staghorn fern was quite spectacular,

and King Palm was looking all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

In fact, everything in the garden was absolutely  lovely. 🙂

Miss Callistemon was showing off her new red dress, when we took mom back to her cottage,

and her Cycad seemed to have grown a foot since last week; obviously trying to catch up with the “Emerald Goddess” behind it.
