I spent about an hour or so with my Fujifilm X-T2 and 80mm Macro lens, walking around the gardens looking for some macro shots. For those of you who haven't been here before and might like to visit (it's R10 per entry), here's a map on how to get there:
It was quite a chilly morning, even though the sun was shining. By the time I left it had warmed up a bit, but the wind had also started up, making hand-held macro shots too difficult. The gardens were quite well patronised, with a small restaurant that makes great cappuccinos! Lots of bees around, but not too much else - I think it was a bit cold for that.
Here are some of my shots on the day:

It was a really nice and relaxing way to spend and hour or two. It looks like the restaurant caters mainly for breakfasts, though there are some light lunches, with a "Dish of the day" (Babotie and rice with vegetables when I was there) on offer. Pleasant and friendly staff on duty, ably looked after by Karin, the manager.
