A visit to the Arderne Gardens in Claremont

 A visit to the local Arderne Gardens in Claremont offered a surprise find of 5 of the 86 champion trees listed for South Africa.  One of the most spectacular gardens within the greater Cape Town area and a must-do visit for any nature and tree lover.  Even our 3 year old son loved the energy that these majestic specimens gave us.  Next time we will bring a picnic and stay for much longer.
A great deal of thanks goes to Mr Ralph Henry Arderne for creating this special space and leaving such a legacy for others to enjoy.
