Some towns are blessed with outstanding public recreational sites nearby where citizens may enjoy nature. The botanical garden on the town outskirts often exists due to the foresight of committed and visionary leaders who ensured the saving of "the natural treasure on the doorstep" before urban sprawl destroyed it forever.
There must be many such places near towns somewhere in the world waiting in their windows of opportunity for someone to secure them for posterity.
The well-known Window Rock in the Caledon Wildflower Garden is such a success story, a special spot saved in time to make a rural town proud.
Hymenolepis crithmifolia in bloom is only one of the seasonal floral enhancements appearing regularly to emphasise the point.
