Lovely entry Liz. . . .My Brother went to CBC in Silverton . . is it still the Jacarandah City? - so many beautiful trees get the chop for housing estates and then Joe Public is called upon to plant trees and save the planet...a vicious circle. . .
May 11 2007 13:01 GMT LizSA
Natascia....seem to me you have rreally travelled a lot in the world...
yes we also did a bit of traveling but our kids live in other countries...
Jacarandah City....Yes...and this year it was very dry summer...sadley...
we hope we might get 'n bit of rain in the winter months with the cape..!
the chopping of the trees....sadley ...yes... all these complexes shooting
up we also live in a complex...and hope for a bit of safety...:-)) you would understand..!
