In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Ornate.”

Ornate show entry

A seat at Pietermaritzburg’s

own House and Garden Show

Is one hayfever sufferers

will never want to know!

Ornate home

All features of this Durban home

far short of bad taste stop,

And yet the blinds on windows

are quite well over the top!

Ornate garden

The flowers are a pleasant sight

to see, you will agree,

While also bring kept abreast

of thrusts in statu’ry!

Ornate City Hall

In Cape Town’s City Hall you find

some ornate things to see

To stop the audience dropping off

right in mid-symphony!

    The statuary reminds me of a favourite drive my father used to take us on for a Sunday afternoon. On the journey we passed a garden with an elegant statue that we littl’uns referred to as ‘Mammy with no clothes’!


  5. I love the “eye lids” on that house’s windows!
