(In 2014 - I'm editing posts. Teasing apart the photos that will stay here as part of the story of Elephant's Eye garden - and will be moving the still useful blogging posts to Elephant's Eye on False Bay)

Words by Diana of Elephant's Eye

Those are my links)


  1. Diana, I'm still here! I joined Blotanical 5 days earlier than you but now your are already so much faster than me. You have made great strides in Blotanical and also in Blogger. I like your Blogger and Blotanical updates.

    It's funny, I can't see the date for your blog post today. Also, I miss your large header of the Elephant Eye mountains. This one is a bit narrow and doesn't do justice to its beauty and mystique.

  2. oops, I forgot this is a 'Page', hence no post dates. See the point? I'm still slower than you ;>)

  3. I like blogs to load fast. I don't like to wait for pictures to load. And I especially don't like to, wait, for a header, to load, when I have come to a familiar blog to read the latest post.

  4. There are more pictures on the Why Elephant's Eye Page.

  5. Obviously I'm not a dyed-in-the-wool blogger because most of the above is quite confusing to me. I just like to write and share about living in the WUI where I live, and when I can I read other people's blogs but not as often as I'd like to I guess. I keep thinking that sometime I'll get more active in all the blogger's world stuff, but then other times I think - it's just not me. I'm moderately introverted in real life and I guess that carries over into the blogging life. I'll read this post over again to figure out some of what I'm missing out on!


Thanks for comments that add value. Maybe start a new thread of discussion? BTW your comment won't appear until I've read it.

I welcome comments on this latest post, as we move to False Bay.

Danke fuer sinnvolle Kommentare. Die werden erst veroeffentlicht nachdem ich sie gelesen habe. Es koennen auch Bemerkungen sein die in eine ganz andere Richtung gehen.
