The weekend saw a huge influx of visitors to Fernkloof to participate in the annual Flower Festival, where the theme was Fynbos Creatures. Not only were there superb arrangements of local flora and fauna, but an astounding collection of over 400 different specimens. These attracted many amateur and professional botanists who were able to identify whatever occurs in the area at this time.
Other attractions included stalls displaying everything from detailed botany to energy conservation and herpatology. The restaurant provided a constant flow of good food and the nursery attracted many plant buyers. All in all it was a very successful affair, and the Botanical Society should pride itself on a job well done!
