White hair

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. 
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" 
Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

The magnificent display of South African wildflowers put together by the SA National Biodiversity Institute at Kirstenbosch has received a gold medal at the 2016 Royal Horticultural Society’s flower show, which opened today.

The team sent out a tweet a few hours ago saying “Our #RHSChelsea Flower Show exhibit received a gold medal!” It was South Africa’s 34th gold medal in 41 years at the show. 

“The waiting is the worst part, but this makes all the hard work worthwhile,” said Lihle Dlamini, SANBI’s Director of Marketing and Communication, who is part of the team at the show. “It is just fantastic!”

South Africa is reportedly one of the highlights of the massive and extremely popular show every year, which this year was attend by the queen and Prince Harry, amongst other royals.

“By Sunday night, we know that we have done what we can, and it is over to the judges to make their decision on Monday morning,” said one of the garden’s designers David Davidson. “We are kept on tenterhooks – and away from our stand – while the celebrities and Queen Elizabeth enjoy the show, so we only heard the happy news this morning!”
