The view down the street from my veranda. I love the big palm tree two houses from where I am staying. The bougainvilla's are blooming all over. You see these bright patches of flowers all over the gardens this time of the year. The one thing I love about the Western Cape and the part where I am living is the fact that everything stays green all year round because of the lovely rain we get and the fact that the mist from the see keeps everything moist.
