As you will all know, Ronda in South Africa needs funds to enable her and her wonderful team to continue distributing the blankets, hats, hand warmers and toys that we make and send.

We don’t like to keep asking members to contribute financially, but without the necessary funds, KAS SA would struggle to continue to help the vulnerable children.

So…

We thought it would be a fun idea for members, and perhaps friends and family of our members, to plant a virtual ‘KAS Garden’ by donating $5 for each flower, fruit, vegetable, shrub or tree chosen.

Please choose something from the list and share with us the reason for your choice… it could be a favourite of yours, or a loved one, or perhaps a happy memory.

It may be that what you want isn’t on the list. If so, please tell us what you would like to plant. I hope we can also learn from each other, as what may be favourites in one country may not even grow in another!

It doesn’t matter at all if more than one person chooses the same flower; it will be nice to have something else in common with each other, in addition to our love for KAS.

We hope that over the next 6 weeks our garden will grow, and as it is a virtual garden, all things will grow well together, no matter what the season. The best thing is that there won’t be a bug in sight!

Hello Glo, I am very happy to plant a Nelly Moser for you, it is a very pretty.

Clematis (Nelly Moser)

Thank you so much, Chris.  Isn't it gorgeous :))  Even though it's not blue, I still love it ... LOL  

I hope you're wearing garden gloves and knee pads.  You're doing a smashing job in keeping our garden stocked and weed-free!! ... xo

Today I met up with my friend Linda for lunch and a catch up and, as usual, our catch up  took  longer than the lunch! As often happens, conversation turned to KAS and Linda very kindly made a donation, and would like me to plant Anemones, as they were a favourite of her mother and Honeysuckle for her husband Norman who tends the Honeysuckle in their garden.

Anemones

Honeysuckle

Thank you Linda and Happy 70th Birthday Norman!

Today is my son Andrew’s birthday, so Jess (our little dog) asked me to plant some strawberries for him....

Strawberries

Happy Birthday Andrew!

The Bluebonnet is the Texas State flower.  I want to plant a field for KAS.

Oh thank you Amy, they are very pretty....... I have learned something too..... the Texas State Flower :))

Bluebonnets

I'd always assumed it was the Yellow Rose - what a surprise!

I'd like to choose pale pink peonies and a purple clematis, Christine. I love both of them. I've made my donation. This is a great idea to raise funds.

Hello Marion, thank you for joining our garden planting! I have just ‘planted’ your lovely flower choices...

Pink Peonie

Purple Clematis

After a very long, cold and wet spring, we finally got two days of sunshine and 25C weather in my part of the world.  At last the Forget-me-nots and violets are blooming in the grass even if they don't really belong there.  What a welcome sight!  Chris, please plant some Forget-me-nots for me in celebration of the fact that Mother Nature is finally awake and has gone into action.

Hello Anne, glad to hear that the sun is shining and Mother Nature is awake in Leaskdale Canada! I have just planted Forget-Me-Nots for you in our KAS Garden...... the garden is shaping up well!

Forget-Me-Nots

I met up with my sister Sharon today and she would like me to plant two of our mother’s favourites.......

Pansies

Lavender

Thanks Sha!

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
