The philosophy I am trying to adopt for my life is, not to lose sight of the beauty that surrounds me, to be mindful of it and thankful for it every day. I am extremely fortunate to live, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful cities in the world – Cape Town! The suburb that we live in is more of a “country hamlet” than a “suburban metropolis” – much more suited to peaceful living.
Living in the “country” has its cons, one of which is the travelling. We have often considered moving closer to the girl’s school, as we are quite far away, but then all you need to do is wake up in the morning and look out at the sea. You instantly forget about the travelling issues you may have.
I decided to take a leisurely, rather introspective, stroll around the garden the other day, a sunny winter’s day -to enjoy the splendour that is literally in my “back garden”. I did not pass up the photo-op that presented itself and took a few photographs. I was amazed at the magnificence in a simple Daisy bush and the wonder of a humble butterfly.
So I hope you enjoy my “Home-grown” beauty as much as I did!
