This view from my back porch is one of the reasons I bought this particular house. Also for the peace and quiet that comes with it. I have owned this home for exactly four years at the beginning of February. It's my home and has brought me great peace and joy. Also from this garden came my two cats, just when I needed the company. I am also very fortunate to have a welcome, home space - filled with love - in the West too, three hours away in Johannesburg. It's good for balance, also for grounding, and it wraps all of it's arms around me when I suffer, here, from cabin fever. I'm also eternally grateful to the space, and love, my mother provides me with in London. She has made her home there for the past seventeen years.
