Dear Capensis Member

Whether you loathe or love Nietzsche, this one is pretty amazing. Reading this and thinking of how we are dancing in spirit because some rain has finally fallen, the green that suddenly surrounds us and the carpets of flowers everywhere…….. this is our music, which other regions of our country cannot begin to hear. There is a new energy in the air, Spring is here and the 100th Darling Wildflower Flower Show is just around the corner. Darling and her people are blossoming.

A little group of 9 Capensis members met at Plankies baai for the annual Spring braai. It turned out to be a wonderful day and Posberg showed it’s best kept secret again in a blaze of colours. The company was great, lots of laughter and stories were shared while the air was filled with that special aroma of meat sizzling away. Thank you for those who supported and to those who could not make it , we missed you!

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday the 6th September, a few days earlier than normal to accommodate our members who help with the preparatory work at the Flower Show. Bring a friend or family member to our meeting, it makes such a difference to have a full hall for our generous guest speakers, who never ask for any compensation to share their stories and knowledge with us.

We look forward to listening to Andre Boshoff for more information on Estate planning and the impact of the recent Knysna fires.

Darling Greetings
