Welcome to Free State
National Botanical Gardens
I expected lots of flowers but there where mostly trees and bushes. They were beautiful and there were markers to explain how these trees and plant were used by men anciently and today.
Not a real good picture but the information is interesting
blind where you go in and look through peep hole at the birds. There where some really colorful fun birds to look at. I could not get any really good pictures of them.
These garden show the English influence on South Africa. We see a lot of very manicured yards with little gardens sectioned off in them.
We were about to leave when we heard someone saying I know you Elder and Sister. Up came a worker who shook our hands and introduced herself as Sister Flora, which I thought was quite appropriate for where we were. She is a very enthusiastic and sweet sister. We say her the next Sunday at church and she insisted on a second picture with her Sunday clothes instead of her work clothes.
There was so much more but I think you have seen more than you probably wanted to see anyway. I hope you enjoyed your short tour of the Free State Botanical Gardens.
