Make a change

Joy Herbst of Sedge­field writes

We live in a beau­ti­ful com­plex on the Gar­den Route. Due to the drought, we had to change our small, very un­tidy and high-main­te­nance gar­den to make it more wa­ter­wise and indige­nous. My hus­band David, who has never been a gar­dener, said he would like to de­sign the new gar­den for me. I was ap­pre­hen­sive but I agreed.

He even changed the sand­blasted de­cal on the front doors to match the sym­met­ri­cal stone pavers! I’m thrilled and, of course, so is he.

David is now an avid gar­dener at 71. I catch him stand­ing out­side the front door, gaz­ing at his hand­i­work. And so he should. It’s never too late to find a new hobby.
