Aspidistra Nursery: Part 11

Aspidistra Nursery is one of my favorite places to visit. Every time I visit I see something new.

My favorite part of the visit to Aspidistra is visiting the tea room for a refreshing cup of tea and a Milk Tart Cupcake…. Yummee

Leaving just after midnight on 1 July 2015

I cannot believe that more than a year ago my parents and I started planning our holiday….  Unfortunately my husband won’t be joining us on this adventure but I am feeling very blessed to have this opportunity to spend time with my parents and my two wonderful boys.

My aim on this holiday is to visit and photograph as many little towns as possible…. Dad made a 15 page tour description of all the little towns on our circle route. I will be trying to post from my phone if I have reception.

We leave Kraaifontein on 1 July 2015 and will be travelling about 960 km Kimberley. On 2 July we will visit Kimberley big hole and if we have time I want to visit a small town not far from here.

On 3 July we will be leaving for Bakubung in the Pilanesberg. This trip will be approx 740 km. We will be staying here for a few days. Visiting Sun City and a few towns surrounding  Pilanesberg.

We will be leaving very early on the 10th of July because we have to cover 1264 km to Aberdeen where

we will be staying the night. On this route there is allot of small towns and I will not be able to visit them all, so we will have to see what towns we will be stopping by. Affordable Accommodation was a problem and Aberdeen was the only place left who could accommodate us.

The 11th we will head back home via Route 62. We will be covering another 705 km on our last day.

The boys and I are ready and everything is packed. My camera and batteries was first on the list of things to pack. I am super excited and cannot wait. I am literally counting the hours. Tomorrow is going to be extra long…

Looking forward to sharing all the photo’s and stories with you. I am going to keep a log and will write in it every evening so that I don’t forget anything. My boys are growing up very fast and time spend with them and my parents are very special to me.

As we enter the Western Cape at the bottom of the Van Rhyns Pass there is a  abandoned little Farm stall. As we came down the Pass you just saw flowers and before my father could say stop I was already thinking first available safe stop I am stopping…. WOW we had a great time photographing all the plants and flowers. I totally forgot about time and after 45 minutes my mom said she thinks we better be heading home now… We tried to limit our stops to around 10 – 15 minutes but here we just could not stop capturing God’s given treasures to us…. I am so Blessed to have the opportunity to spend so much time capturing His gift to us an the best of all I can share the experience with my Mother and Father. I love them to bits.S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1342 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1343 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1345 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1349 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1350 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1352 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1358 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1360 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1363 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1364 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1367 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1369 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1370 S-U-C Parks & Flower Tour_1372

On our way home from Nieuwoudtville to Kraaifontein. As soon as we saw a field of flowers we stopped to take some photographs of it. One cannot believe how many different wildflowers grows in a square meter. I had a field day on the way home.
