Sillery flower farm
I've been buying flowers from Sillery farm for the past 18 years, ever since the kids were next door at the Waldorf kindergarten (the kindergarten children still visit, to see the gigantic chickens)
They sell the romantic, old fashioned flowers- sweet peas with fragrance, delicate poppies, stocks, pretty purple violets and lots more, all for a very good price.
The fields, as you can see are freshly planted with the summer flowers, but the happy poppies are in abundance.
If we're energetic, we walk from our house, down Constantai road, right into Pagasvlei and take the short cut through Brounger way - how gorgeous is this lane....looks good for a game of boules?
Whenever we walk down this lane, I stand on tippy toes to peek at this gorgeous old Corrugated iron cottage- Oh, the possibilities....
The other bunch of flowers I bought to brighten my spirit, whilst I toiled away at work this week.
The greenbelt between Constantia road and Brounger way, there is a weeping willow of note next to the stream- well come again in spring to show you. Picture perfect!
