I visited the Riviersonderend house in the first week of November 2018 because the water tanks had been vandalised by the local children looking for cold water to play in. James Hill did a nifty repair for me and all I had to do was nod and look impressed. Which I did and was. He found a tiny person to climb into the tank and hold the other end of the tap.
And he also trimmed back the hedge that had been encroaching on the road, let alone the sidewalk.
He also cleaned a bit of the back garden for a vegetable garden.
The tanks have been providing a necessary support to the garden as you can see in the following pictures. Especially the Tecomas brought back from extinction.
And my coral trees are doing just fine.
Rose carpet doing well.And the grapes.
My struggling tree likes the special attention too
A welcome flowering from the jasmine, despite being neglected
