 66 Square Feet from Sam and Sara's roof

I have never left the terrace in spring.

But we are going far, far, away. To late autumn and early winter.

 Chives and sage

I am very excited, but also a bit sad.

Catnip, chives, bulbine, calamintha, sage 

Our kitty is doing very well, frisky and eating and ready to party. 


So are the roses.

New Dawn

See you in South Africa.


  1. have a safe trip!
    Looking forward to seeing beautiful photos in South Africa

  2. You really know how to make this icky weather beautiful.
    & I would hate to leave this beautiful oasis too! but I know you know the one you are going to is equally great, so have an amazing trip & a safe journey.

  3. Your garden looks absolutely beautiful! Have an amazing trip! I am already excited for your reports on beautiful things in South Africa.

  4. Your garden appears as a raft. Something tells me SA's winters are not like ours :)

  5. So glad that you are leaving a much improved Estorbo, I imagine you'll have more fun without the worry of his health.

    Safe travels, Marie, and have a wonderful visit to your beloved homeland.

  6. Glad to hear Estorbo is better.

    Wish I were going to South Africa. Visiting through your photos and words is the next best thing. Please take some photos of your mom's exquisite garden for us.

    Enjoy your trip!

  7. the biggest hug! Look what strength and beauty you have created!!

    1. dinahmow, you're just excited because you're on your way to the Big Apple. Enjoy your trip!

    2. Too busy to get excited just yet, but very pleased to be seeing friends. Especially a furry one!

  9. The terrace looks wonderful - love the view from across the street. Can't wait to stalk you to SA!

  10. South Africa is ready for you! The winter weather in Joburg is very different to Cape Town, but as you are off to Kruger you should get to see the beautiful crisp blue of the Higveld sky and sun pretty much all of the time. We may not do properly insulated houses, but as long as you can find a sunny spot...
    Also looking forward to your photos to see "my world" through new eyes

  11. Marie,
    Thank you for including me in your blogroll.
    Do consider coming to Istanbul again, as I would love to meet you in person.
    Have a good time in SA.

  12. Bon voyage. I look forward to the travelog.
