November in our False Bay garden

  by Diana Studer - gardening for biodiversity   in Cape Town, South Africa UPDATE - I forgot about our  Earth tremor around midnight 16 November . Thomas and I both felt the ripple and heard the rumble. A heavily laden truck going too fast across a speed hump?! Wind gust ripping off the roof?!                For my Advent wreath my garden gave me, ivy and Dusty miller leaves. Dwarf papyrus flowers around the base for the photo. Alstroemeria gave four generous flowerheads.   Advent Wreath   Advent Wreath from above Finally, after lockdown, I have new glasses. I spent the last week reprogramming my brain, to read with glasses. Battled to see my laptop (standing is fine, but sitting!) Sunday we took a long drive around Cape Point for me to practice seeing while I drive.   Paulsberg and Judas Peak at Cape Point   I have a new camera waiting in its box, but, new glasses have made my 'old' camera much more efficient.
