I loved the ‘30 Tips for Living in Small Spaces’ article in your August issue. As a student who can’t afford a big home, let alone an interior designer, this article helped me transform my once boring living room, which now feels 100 times bigger. Some tips I followed included creating a feature wall by hanging a piece of printed fabric, getting a set of nesting tables for multiple uses, and using my rug to create different zones. Thank you
Garden and Home for making me love my new and improved abode!
SUPER SUPPER Thank you Garden and Home for your bobotie recipe. I made it last night and it was amazing! I loved the almonds for the extra crunch and the banana was so yummy. I’ll definitely make this again!
I wondered if you could tell me what this succulent on my balcony is? It made a beautiful photo when it flowered earlier this year. I love that it looks like something from a coral reef.
Lauren Harrison It looks like Orbea variegata, commonly known as carrion flower or aasblom. An indigenous succulent, it grows in the coastal regions of the Western Cape.
The markings of the star-shaped flowers vary, but typically are maroon stripes, dots or dashes. A fun fact, it was one of the first carrion flower species collected in southern Africa.
