There are low clouds sweeping across the Fynbos Walk. At night we are still lighting fires, sleeping with extra blankets and wearing layers in the day.

But the garden is convinced that Spring is here!

Here are some of the edible flowers in bloom in our gardens:

  1. have planted seeds of an edible chrysanthemum: used for soups and as a spice: waiting for them to come up, but weather’s cold and I don’t have a hothouse. Also dianthus (Pinks) can be eaten….Cheers Dave W
