Picturesque Chart Farm situated in the heart of the Southern Suburbs near Wynberg Park in Cape Town, offers a farm-style retreat from the city. Chart Farm prides itself on being the only place in the Cape Peninsula where you can select and pick your own roses.

This historic farm currently has over 12 hectares of arable land where you will find their English style rose garden, grape vines, lemon trees, farmstall, coffee shop, and horse riding with panoramic views stretching all the way to False Bay.

BREXIT 

💥 Bloomberg editorials on political issues are rare and notable.

The headline of this one is "The UK needs a new deal with the EU" and goes on to say "Brexit is a proven failure. Limiting the harm from this historic error should be their top priority." #UKpolitics #Brexit

Taiwan is a free country and has never been part of China.

Xi Jingping is a dictator worse than Mao

HK should be free

Tibet should be free

Xinjiang is a concentration camp for Muslims and Uygers

Tiananmen Square massacre

Taiwan #1

Traditional Chinese is the real Chinese

COVID19 probably started in Wuhan

#introduction #Wales is my home, football team and rugby team, although I arrived here via Watford and Sheffield. Work in #comms and #welshpolitics and my passion is #music and #singing. Please enjoy this photo I took today of my home town #caerphilly. I've joined to see if this is a more positive and progressive place to be than Twitter.

Just a normal country, where music festivals have to employ hidden snipers in case some random dude with a gun decides to try and kill a bunch of people rollingstone.com/music/music-f

So I went out #MountainBiking this afternoon in my area, in the Black Mountain close to the Saint-Ferreol lake...and did I get treated to some magical scenery ! Just had my phone, but it's not about the gear, it's about the landscape and... the light !!! You can see the Pyrénées mountain line on the horizon on two pictures #nature #photography #lanscape

Yesterday was, quite possibly, the last nice day in #Boston this year. Glad I was able to enjoy it.

Hey, I just found out that yesterday (11.11) is "Columns Day" So here are some of my favourite basalt columns - the island of Am Buachaille (the Herdsman) just beside Staffa. Great trip out there recently with Turus Mara from Ulva Ferry. #basalt #columns #staffa #geology

The pots pictured below are going through the raku firing process.

Raku firing is an ancient Japanese ceramics technique that dates back to the 16th century.

Glazed pieces are taken from the kiln when red hot and placed in a combustible organic material that catches fire. This is done to starve the oxygen from the container and creates a myriad of colours, creating completely unique pieces.
