In response to the question raised in the WordPress weekly challenge: what kind of image might help you relax? Images of people relaxing!

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden was founded in 1913 on the eastern slopes of … Continue reading A relaxing picnic with friends at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden
