Today was supposed to be our last walk of the year and we usually go somewhere and all take a plate of food but one of the ladies offered to have us at her house and provide savoury food and we took something sweet. She lives in town so we met at her place and walked down to the Rose Gardens and then the Shade houses.  

It was an enjoyable amble and was a very pleasant 24° C. 

At the edge of the Rose Gardens I noticed these Alstroemerias, I assume they are the original one and I love them, they are so Christmassy with their green and red.  I had a good bed of them in Kamo and brought some here but they vanished under the modern ones.

In the hot house was this plant and, I am afraid, I did not notice its name.

I don't know how often they change the plants in the hot house but it always looks good.

and outside the palm trees against the lovely blue sky.

We got back and had an enjoyable catch up and delicious food.  It was decided to have one more walk for the year.


  1. A good walk and good food sound like the ingredients for a perfect day.

  2. lovely plants and trees, And quite warm. And it is so good that down here we are able to visit friends safely.

    1. Yes, there were 9 of us on the walk plus another four who just came for the get-together. Hotter today.

  3. You should definitely have another walk. It looks like you are having beautiful weather.

    How fortunate you are to be able to visit with people in their homes. With the vaccine, I hope it can be by summer for us.

    1. Yes another walk planned with some shade. 29 degrees C. today.
