This is my garden; end of year;

Hoya carnosa scrambling up a tree, This one is indeginous to this area.

Bromeliad/Vriesia species;

Nature speaks  to anyone but most people do not have the patience to listen. Titania

I love to cook with Aubergines; here called Eggplants; once a week I make Moussaka; it is delicious.

Lagerstroemia, commonly known as crape myrtle is a genus of around 50 species of deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs.

If you want a long speech ask a man, if you want action ask a woman. Titania 

Confidence and courage  are gained by experience; Titania

Lagerstroemia in different pinks are great for summer colour. The trunk and branches sport a beautiful colourful bark which comes into its own in winter when the tree is bare from leaves and flowers.

We can not change our memories, but we can accept them as they are. Titania

Dypsis decaryi is a palm tree commonly known as the Triangle palm native to the Madagascan rainforest.


Age is something that doesn't matter,
 unless you are a cheese.

Bromeliad; Aechmea fasciata; a beautiful addition to any garden; easy and reliable.

Nothing is as fast as time. Titania

View from my garden to the Ecovillage; early morning.

Scots bonnet chillis in the herb garden.They  are used for chilli jam.

Believe it or not: 

What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.

  1. Titania - I stopped by via Bernie's blog, and her blog roll. The name of your blog intrigued me, as I love vanilla and have come to embrace lavender just this year. Lovely blog, insightful words! :)

    1. Shyrlene; thank you very much for your visit and kind words.

  2. So nice to see a warm clime, we are having snow/sleet/rain. I wouldn't mind if it was all snow. Your eggplant shot is great. I make fried eggplant in season (dipped in flour/egg/cornmeal) and eggplant parmesan.

  3. Your garden is looking lovely, Titania. I have been admiring the lagerstoemia around my neighbourhood over the last few weeks. You have such pretty colours.

  4. Your garden is looking colourful. Mine is looking dried out.
