What a dump

Off-loading wild ginger plants at the Ladies Mile Recycling Centre and Garden Waste Dump in a rare burst of sunshine. Devil's Peak in the background.

Today is the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin, who discoverered the three dimensional structures of penicillin, vitamin B12 and insulin. She is also the only British woman ever to have won the Nobel Prize for science.


  1. Greetings from Juneau, Alaska,USA,
    Welcome to the City Daily Photo Community. South Africa is so beautiful. I look forward to seeing more of Cape Town through your lens.:)

  2. I do love ginger. Can you use this stuff?

  3. Thanks for the welcome. I really enjoy the daily photos from around the world. This wild ginger is really called Kahili Ginger or Hedychium gardnerianum. It is related to culinary ginger but is a bit of a pest in South Africa and New Zealand as it spreads really fast especially alongside streams - hence this load of it being dumped. See the site

  4. Thanks for the explanation about wild ginger. I was about to ask what it was too.

  5. The first bad credit personal loan place to look. You canpay them all off with one single loan.
    One way a creditor executes a judgment is through wage garnishment.
    The best option is to transfer the balance of the original mortgage, according to the lowest rate first.
    After investing a little time of yours, you will be contributing
    more towards repayment of principal amount as compared to secured bad credit personal loan; the reason is obviously absence of security.
