A FYNBOS HOUSE

We are all responsible for creating as much biodiversity in our gardens as we possibly can. So often properties are paved for convenience or covered with sterile lawns that don’t contribute to the life that is necessary to keep our piece of paradise alive and well! This was expounded with much humour by Keith Kirsten at his recent talk in Great Brak.
There is a little house on the corner of Jonkersberg and Impala Roads in Fraai Uitsig that is a wonder to behold. Not only is Maeve Parker passionate about filling her garden to bursting with plants that feed and provide a safe haven for bees, butterflies, birds and other small creatures but she has brought the fynbos into even more focus by painting her house with flowers, moths, birds and dragonflies! If you’d like a closer look, or want to see her other creations, cushions, runners and table cloths, give her a ring at 0848023715.
In the meantime plant, plant, plant indigenous even if all you can manage is a window box! We are filled with gratitude that our garden is full of indigenous freesias that have been coming up naturally for generations in our uncut grass.
