Everything is Fine!

Fynbos 1 – Leucadendron salignum

Haiku 268

The world in chaos

However, in my garden

Everything is fine!


The end of a Cape winter is when my fynbos flourishes.

Fynbos 2 – Erica Quadrangularis

Mr Spaghetti Leg’s plant is covered in tiny white flowers.

Fynbos 3 – Erica Quadrangularis

The whole plant is still very small, as you can see by comparing it to the bricks surrounding its base. But it’s still here!

Fynbos 4 – Erica versicolour

Fynbos grows very well, as it is endemic to the Western Cape and quite unique. This Erica was only planted two years ago and just keeps growing. As does the massive cheese plant behind it!

Fynbos 5 – Erica versicolour

It has been producing flowers for months now.

So yes, everything’s fine – in my garden at least!


I’ve written about fynbos a few times, so for more info, just click on the links highlighted in blue.

    With all the chaos that surrounds us, it is a pleasure to visit your tranquil garden and all the beautiful plants that flourish there. If only we could enjoy your winter weather as well! Hope your weekend is a restful one with a bit of fun thrown in!

      Thank you so much! πŸ˜€
      I have to say, if it weren’t for my garden over the past 18 months, I think I’d have gone crazy! πŸ˜€
      Happy Weekend to you too πŸ˜€

    The chaos of the world cannot be ignored. We all must find a place where we can have peace and leave trouble behind for a while.
    Your place is lovely.
    I never realized sweeping and ironing could also be a lovely place. (not being funny!)

      Thank you very much ::D
      I understand you! – Any chore that takes our mind off reality, even for a moment, is beneficial. Even raking leaves! πŸ˜€
