An ordinary Saturday morning turned into an unexpected horticultural experience as we stumbled across a Rotary event in Kloof called “Open Gardens”. All of a sudden we were drawn into different peoples’ properties to view their spectacularly well-kept gardens.
It was a glorious sunny day and therefore perfect outdoor weather for this type of event. As our journey began we were given a map and lead on a type of garden treasure hunt. The beautiful blooming flowers and their layout enthralled all our senses. Vibrant flowers in every colour could be seen along with pollinating bees and chirping birds. Ducks and swans paraded around in ponds in the heart of nature.
It was such a relaxing event as we could walk around the properties ourselves and appreciate the beauty and tranquility that each garden provided. This event was was such fun for the whole family, especially the grandparents who enjoyed a cup of tea at the Tea Garden whilst admiring the aesthetically pleasing views.
