Despite the doom and gloom of Covid we are celebrating Spring with all its magnificence this year. Symbolically, and maybe unconsciously, Spring reminds us that the cycle of life is continuous. There was life before Covid and there will be life after Covid. Some of us have lost loved ones or dear friends, but a blooming flower or a budding tree reminds us of renewal – of new life and new beginnings.
The magic of springtime is cathartic, no matter how endlessly cold and dreary the winter may seem, we know that eventually, spring will arrive. The days will lengthen, the sun will shine, the temperature will rise, the trees will fill with leaves, the grass and the garden will grow, and everything will bloom.
This year we are going to celebrate Spring in Sally Kapp’s beautiful garden in Eastford on the 3rd September, weather permitting. Sally’s garden was beautiful before the fire of 2017, now it is magnificent. Out of the ashes grew a splendid garden, brimming with plants and love, an apt example of renewal and hope.
So do come along and enjoy a morning with us, have a cup of tea or coffee and meander in this lovely space. This is not a formal meeting, there will be no announcements or speakers as we have to adhere to Covid protocols, therefore we request that you wear your mask, keep a safe distance and bring your own cup for tea. The garden will be open between 10.00 to 12.00. If you want to bring a friend along, you are most welcome, as in the past we will charge R20 for visitors.
In case the day is rained out, we will organise an alternative day.
Date: 3rd September at 10am – 12 noon.
Venue: 12 Fish Eagle Street, Eastford Glen.
