RE: Just a few more african pics

Nice pics Beechplants!!! What part of SA do you live in? Seeing those pics reminds me of when I was down there. My cousin and her husband live outside Cape Town in Noordhoek.

RE: Just a few more african pics

Beautiful. Funny, I had no idea. I thought maybe you lived in San Diego.
No wonder your Haworthias are so spectacular!

RE: Just a few more african pics

GGarner, Hanzrobo - Port Elizabeth, halfway between Cape Town and Durban.

Couldn't get tired of photos like that. They are wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing them. SA is a beautiful country.

Hint, hint, of Aloes, Gasterias, any succulent plant in native habitat are invaluable... ;)

RE: Just a few more african pics

Hoovb, I have posted a few already. I will do more, you can be sure of it...thanks for the nice comments.

RE: Just a few more african pics

I'm packing my bags...I'll call you from the airport! ;-)

RE: Just a few more african pics

I see you on the same plane!

That is exactly what I would like do, visit that country and relish amongst all those beautiful plants and some of the animals, well at least a few.

Thank you so much. This was a treat for my eyes. More pictures please?
I always thought you lived in texas? Did you move recently?
You could be so lucky!


RE: Just a few more african pics

My daughter and I just drooled all over the computer looking at these. What a blessing to live in such a gorgeous part of the world! Are you native? We used to live in a similarly gorgeous place and I was frequently struck by how many of the natives seemed to take it for granted.

RE: Just a few more african pics

Hehe, Laura and Mike..You know what, I did a search and I think someone else is also named Beachplant, funny that I was allowed to register as beachplants. So multi plants is from SA! LOL

Mama, yes I am native, but I think we all take our surroundings for granted after a while, I used to get excited to see the dolphins going past, but its become a regular occurrence, now I notice when we do not see them for a few days. I do LOVE nature and get an urge to spend time in nature (drug for the soul) every now and then, which I need to satisfy - if that makes sense. I feel much calmer if I have been out and about for a bit. Rian
