Ah, the most beautiful garden in Africa: Kirstenbosch. And one of my most favourite places on earth.
Today's my birthday! So in celebration I thought I'd share my photos from Kirstenbosch, because I share part of its name.
You start at the bottom of a hill, looking up...
There is art to enjoy (sorry, I didn't write down the artists' names and there is nothing online to tell me whose work this is! Help, anyone?)
You might see some guinea fowl and their chicks! Can you spot them?
And you can wander, through plantings, along pathways...
You can rest at Colonel Bird's Bath
and enjoy the cycad forest
but most of all, you are there for the trees and the plants.
Back in Boston, I also write a little blog at my day job - its about parties. So, for my birthday this year I had a fun mardi gras party and wrote about it on that blog. It was a blast!
