About me

I am starting with a set of 22 photos taken by my mother of her garden in Pinelands, Cape Town, South Africa during 1969 - 1971.
I am no gardener myself, but I like flowers and take pictures of them.
Trees and flowers, particularly roses, were my mother's passion. Later in her life she could no longer manage the roses, and they were progressively removed. These photos show her roses in their heyday.

25 Mar 2010 : My new avatar as from today is by courtesy of the photographer, Hywel, and his friend whose flowers they are.
