Huge Rainbow over Durban CBD

The view from my office after it rained in Durban. Beautiful rainbow, with a second rainbow developing on the right hand side. Stunning!

Ground Cover - KZN Midlands

I visited Ground Cover, a leather work shop in the KZN Midlands over the weekend. They had
a huge pile of off cuts outside, which they very kindly give away for free!

The scary task of repotting my large Adenium!

I decided that it was time to repot my large Adenium Multiflorum, its been in the same pot for about 3 years now, so its long overdue!  The whole process took about 2 hours, which involved removing the plant, cleaning it off, pruning the roots and repotting - shew!

I had pruned the branches a couple of weeks ago as the leaves were covered with mealy bug! So a nice clean start for my biggest Adenium Multiflorum.

The plant from its top branches to the bottom is about 1 metre. I'll be posting a pic of it repotted soon!

Removed from pot with caudex and roots still covered in soil.

Clean caudex and pruned roots.

Close up! What an awesome root system!
