The George parkrun will launch on Saturday, 5 April 2014

Parkrun is international, it started off in the UK and the world joined in.  ‘parkrun’ is always spelled with a small letter ‘p’. There is currently 25+ parkrun events in SA. 

The story will be centred on a pair of Egyptian Geese who have tried unsuccessfully for many years to rear a brood of goslings only to lose them to predators when they are only a few days old. This year the resourceful parents made a nest in a nearby garden and hatched eight youngsters.

Op Vrydag en Saterdag, 4 en 5 April, hou die Botaniese Tuin in George hulle Herfs verkoping. Hierdie aktiwiteit vind plaas in terme van die Botaniese Tuin se missie om plante van die Suid-Kaap te versamel, te bewaar en waar nodig te restoureer en te vermeerder. Om plante aan die publiek beskikbaar te stel is ‘n uitvloeisel van hierdie funksies.

What a stunning Christmas present to see this beautiful flower in full bloom all over town. We see them in blue and in white, tall and small, although almost all the varieties are cultivars of A. praecox.
