Port Elizabeth Golf Club – late afternoon

Late afternoon at the first hole of the Port Elizabeth Golf Club in South Africa. The Club was established in 1890 – over 130 years ago.

Sherwood Garden Centre in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

This is not a paid advertisement. I just want to share with you an enjoyable experience we had with friends this morning. It was a delicious breakfast at the Sherwood Garden Centre. It is a large nursery full of beautiful flowers and ideas for the garden. The people working there are friendly and helpful. Inside the Centre there is a restaurant and some interesting small shops. One of the shops is a second hand book shop with plenty of really interesting and valuable books.

Below are a number of pictures I took. Please scroll to the end (an exquisite miniature garden windmill).

When you arrive you are greeted by a cooling piano waterfall and by a naughty ant who was immediately put in its place! See the picture below.

I hope you enjoy the post.

Below: The excellent second hand book shop. The bookshop has many more books than you can see in the picture. Apparently there are more than 30 000 books to choose from.

Below: And of course – Some of the gorgeous flowers. There are plenty more.

The beautiful miniature windmill. Very South African. A great garden idea.

To repeat. I was not paid for this post. I just enjoyed myself.
