When the vibrant colours of the new Spring growth begin to appear, its definitely my favourite time of year. Here are some pictures of the trees that have sprung into life first.
This shohin Yew has new buds everywhere, much earlier than previous years
My Acer Shishigashira is always the first of my maples to leaf out
Larches always look their best at this time
A visit to Strandfontein offers members the chance to see some rare birds, as a number of them have recently been recorded at this famous locality. Those wishing to attend should meet at the Onrus Trading Post at 7 am next Thursday (the 6th April) to consolidate transport. Barbara will lead the outing and Challengers should use this opportunity to augment their lists.
Please ensure that you have sufficient food and drinks to see yourself through till around 2 pm, when we hope to be back in Hermanus.
