Car garden

I haven’t had time to blog for ages – it’s been a busy month!

I’ve just returned from an intensive trip down the Garden Route and along Route 62 and have a lot of admin work to catch up on, plus more tours later this week – tourist season has arrived a tad early but no-one is complaining! I have a few pics from this trip for several blog entries but in the meantime here’s the weirdest thing I’ve seen in a while.

This car was parked just inside the entrance at Cape Point Nature Reserve. I wish I’d had time to leave the owner a note asking what this is all about .. the plants are all the same, a very common and easily grown succulent whose name escapes me. There’s a thick layer of soil along the back and the plants are trailing down the back seat. The window was not fully closed, as I imagine it never is. The car was parked where hikers leave their cars so we can safely assume we’re dealing with a nature lover of note.

About Francoise Armour

I run a small touring company (Tours du Cap) at the bottom of Africa, to show visitors the beauty and vibrant culture of the country I have lived in since my parents brought me here from France as a child. I enjoy taking photos and wish I had learnt to do it properly. I enjoy writing but don't do enough of it. I enjoy walking in the mountains that surround me and I marvel over the views and the flowers and the amazing rock formations. I have a small, cute, clever, black dog of indeterminable breed, named Vida, who reminds me regularly that walking and getting out is not only for when tourists want it.

All feedback welcome, so share your thoughts please!

A note to all accidental visitors:

I am not a photographer and do not claim to have any particular skills whatsoever in that department. I have enormous respect for those who can see the potential in a scene and can create a great photo. Good photography is an art, in my opinion.

I am just a happy snapper, I have no special lenses or accessories, my camera is very simple and it's usually best to leave the setting on auto.
