    What a place! I met two friends for lunch there on Saturday. People queuing to get in, waiting round like seagulls for that next perfect table to open up. The walls are clad with an airborne tea party. Dainty tea pots wrapped in ribbon hang from the ceiling, and doily like place mats add texture to the wall area above the mantelpiece. The menu boasts originality and simple decadence. Every dish brought past by the watrons looked like a work of art; but it’s the delicate, balanced flavours for which Manna Epicure is most renowned. I chose the succulent fillet topped with red wine soaked porcine mushrooms in a creamy sauce which came with a side of roast potato wedges drizzled with a delicious cheese sauce. Mouthwatering! This is a fantastic place to go for a great breakfast, brunch or lunch. I highly recommend it.

If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about ageing that you think in fractions. 'How old are you?' 'I'm four and a half!' You're never thirty-six and a half.

    It’s Arbor Month – Plant a Tree In celebration of Arbor Month in September, the City of Cape Town is to plant 738 trees throughout the city. Spring is the ideal time for every resident to become involved in planting a pot plant, shrub or a tree. Plants act as natural filters to clean our air by reducing carbon emissions, thus mitigating the devastating effects of global warming. The Wild Plum (Harpephyllum caffrum) is the common tree of 2008, and the Bladder-nut tree (Diospyros whyteana) is the rare (uncommon) official tree of the year. It is indigenous to the Cape Town area, although it only grows in certain habitats (Afrotemperate). A number of Wild Plums will be planted in the Strand area. The Bladder-nut tree is not suitable for planting in our region due to the different soil types in the Peninsula. We will also plant other species of trees such as Ficus rubiginosa (fig) and Acacia xanthophloea (Fever Tree) and Acacia Karroo (Sweet Thorn) best suited for the soil of ...... Read Full Post
