Writing poems, knitting and crochet has been hobbies since I was in Primary school. Gardening - I must have gotten the love of flowers and working in wet soil from my mother. She was a keen gardener in her time. Even my dad had a great love for vegetable gardening. I still remember the days we were staying in Thabazimbi - my parents won the "most beautiful garden" competition two consecutive years.

Then there were the time we stayed on a small holding. My dad and I used to walk along the tomatoes, carrying some salt in a little container. Oh, the smell of that freshly picked tomatoes and the fresh sparkling taste of a sun ripe tomato on your tongue – absolutely divine! The memories of the passed… It will always stay clear in my mind and near in my heart!
