Hi everyone!  It’s so good to be back. I hope you all had a wonderful festive season, and that you’re rearing to go!  I really can’t believe that we’re almost half way through January already, time really does fly when you’re having fun.

We had a wonderful time over the last month spending quality time in our beautiful city with our close family.  It’s so easy to overlook the incredible part of the world that we live in, but doing touristy things with friends and family always makes me have a new appreciation for Cape Town.

I’m ashamed to admit that even after living in Cape Town for 10 years (almost to the day!), I’ve never visited Chart Farm.  I have no idea why, since I’ve driven past it hundreds of times.  Last week we visited Chart Farm with some friends and family, and we had a wonderful time wondering through the rows and rows of exquisite roses.  It was also a fun opportunity to dust off my macro filters and take some pretty pictures.

Chart Farm is situated in Wynberg, and is open 7 days a week.  You can pick your own beautiful roses (which smell amazing) for R5 a stem (or R3 a stem on Sundays).  Secateurs are provided.  You can also stop by The Terrace restaurant for tea or a light meal.  All highly recommended for a fun day out!
