I'm an amateur green-thumb but with a deep and passionate love for everything outdoors.
My current obsession is my succulent collection, the quick propagation rate and stubborn hardiness of the succulents and cacti are truly addictive.
Being in a water scarce country we are very aware of having water wise plants.
I also faithfully plant and grow veggies every year, with varying degrees of success.
I look forward to sharing our gardening adventures!

Hello. I think we might have Mediterranean climate in common, we have similar conditions here in Southern California.

Welcome (y).

What part of S.A. are you in?
In Port Elizabeth on the East Coast... also known as the Garden Route! We only recently moved here, it's my husband's home town, and I'm really looking forward to exploring.

A nice area to be in. I used to work out there, on and off, from 1962-64. Been back a few times (y)

I like this statue that they erected to commemorate the horses that died in the Second Boer War.

Hi Bootsy,
the family just told me that the statue has been vandalized a few times, they spray painted it green! But luckily the city seems to be good about dealing with vandals and are keeping the local statues clean. Thanks for sharing your lovely photo.

Hi there :) Welcome to the forum! It's nice to have you here, I must say I am also a big fan of succulents, mostly because they require so very little care and their water needs are so little :) Hopefully you will find this forum very useful and enjoy your stay :)
