I am constantly reminded of how lucky we are to live in this amazing country we call South Africa. It is so rich in biodiversity and promise.
The indigenous trees, too, reflect this richness, and evoke the spirit of the place that their species originated from. For instance, when I look at the Acacia species, they are the quintessential African Savannah trees.
South Africa has some 1700 indigenous tree species, and each year 2 species are chosen as the tree of the year. This Arbor Week we tell you a bit more about the Trees of the Year for 2015.
They are the Forest Bushwillow (Combretum kraussii) and the Parsley Tree (Heteromorpha arborescens).

For over 20 years internationally known Africa Yarona has operated as a loose association of 15 artists. Their name means "this beautiful Africa of ours".
For the months of September and October some of their beautiful sculpture will be displayed and sold from Random Harvest Indigenous Nursery.
When I looked at this art, It is so quintessentially Africa, particularly Southern African, that I felt it would fit in beautifully with our indigenous plants. The varied textures and colours of the plants lend themselves well to hand crafted, organic garden sculpture.
Random Harvest Nursery celebrates 25 years in business as an indigenous plant nursery in October, and we are delighted that Elsa Pooley is part of our exciting programme of events for this month.
