Getting ready for Summer

At the beginning of September - the spring - in South Africa we are getting ready for summer.
This year our garden was in need of topsoil to level the humps and bumps.

My husband - Hennie - did an incredible job.
One of these days the gardens at De Oude Huize will be stunning,  again.
All in a days work 
Our garden is approximately 2000m2

There is a lot of promise everywhere.  
. . . . . . . . . . . .
The piles of topsoil and sand are spread over the grass and levelled.  
Time for coffee and biscuits under the Campanile 

A garden is a grand teacher. It teaches patience and careful watchfulness;
it teaches industry and thrift; above all it teaches entire trust

Looking good 

The blossoms is showing everywhere. 
Soon it will be back to normal.
Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it.  
Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?

Thanks for visiting may you all have a wonderful week.  

Love from South Africa 

Thank you for all the wonderful friends whom are sharing this story!!!
