Winter in the Cape means rain with the cold. Virtually no substantial rain has fallen as yet with the lovely weather experienced thus far, so here’s hoping that there will be some more rain in the months ahead.

CONTEMPLATIONS ON COVID
It is hard to believe we are now in the third month of lock down restrictions. Do we even remember what normal life was like before Covid 19?
Kenilworth Vet have often been asked if our pets can carry Covid 19 and pass the virus on to their owners. In some countries pets are being abandoned or handed over to welfare organisations because of misinformation. Read more here.
JULY IN THE GARDEN
Temperatures have been steadily dropping, and thankfully there have been a few days of decent rain.
July is perhaps the one month in the year that the garden requires the least amount of human involvement, both food gardening as well as flowering plant gardening. The list of plants to plant during July is the shortest list of all the months in the year.
PROPERTY MARKET RECOVERY
COVID-19 lockdown may have certainly slowed the property market down as showing property was not allowed, but early indications suggest that a full recovery is likely soon.
Initial predictions regarding the future of the residential property market as a result of the Covid-19 lockdown have painted a sombre picture but it seems that it was only a prediction.
IMMUNE STRENGTHENING WITH OZONE THERAPY
Ozone therapy (O3) is oxygen with an added molecule which is a super charged oxygen molecule which assists in stabilising healthy cells and aids in the destruction of malformed, immature sick cells, viruses, bacteria and pathogens foreign to our body.
The Framer offers made-to-measure photograph framing, art framing and picture framing and has done so for 26 years (2020).
Their custom framing service gives you a choice of styles of picture frame, with hundreds of moulding styles and colours to choose from.
