Midland greens

Well, I'm back from my holiday in the Kwa Zulu Natal midlands. It is still as beautiful as ever with the start of spring and everything turning green . I couldn't resist a pic of these scrumptious looking salad greens. My Mom is an avid gardener so wherever we went we had to stop at the garden centers. This one was at a farm stall called Piggly Wiggly.

There are hundreds of farm stalls, restaurants and craft shops along the Midlands Meander which wanders, or meanders, through the most picturesque countryside. Shops are tucked away down dusty farm roads and it's really quite an adventure following the map, getting lost, and trying to find all the places on your list!

This is the view from a cluster of craft shops across the valley to Piggly Wiggly over on the other side.I must admit I didn't take as many photo's as I wanted to because I wanted to use my camera and not my cell phone. This backfired somewhat because the camera is rather cumbersome and difficult to maneuver in restaurants and shops. Next time I think I will just stick to the cell phone and go for quantity rather than quality!

It's such a comfort to read that even though it's cold and awful here, it's spring somewhere in the world, right now!
