Still in South Africa

Above is a wild iris (Dietes bicolor) which flourishes beside my large garden pond

It is now almost six weeks since we flew out of Khartoum to come home on break. We are STILL waiting for my husband's resident's permit. That's Africa for you...

Meanwhile I'm enjoying the explosion of colour, textures and fragrances in my garden.


  1. Hurry up and wait!!!!! Sound familiar???? Well---I guess it's good to be 'flexible'....

    I'm finally home after a huge couple of weeks. Hope you are doing GREAT.

  2. wonderful flower and garden! have a nice wednesday

  3. My daughter visited South Africa and 3 other African countries last summer.
    I thought that your choice of the word STILL in your blog posting was very apt and a reminder about the importance of being still.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Beautiful flower. Frustrating not to get the permits on time, but you have a good attitude, enjoying where you are and the time you have.
