Images and story by Marianne Alexander. Garden by Maureen Viljoen.
My mother's Cape Town garden was featured in a five page spread in February's edition of Garden and Home (South Africa).
I spoke to my mom on Sunday and she sounded quite sad. It's that agapanthus borer. She is having to deal, clump by clump, with her afflicted agapanthus collection, which is extensive, and beautiful.
More about the borer later today. Arm yourselves with a stiff drink.
