Not much news emanating out of St Francis this week but some interesting posts on Facebook are worth publishing as they refer to previous post on St Francis Today. The first was a post on the beautiful Brunsvigia gregaria which is presently blooming on lawns and verges throughout St Francis and indeed Kouga. SFT wrote of these striking plants way back in April 2016. They can be seen flowering at this time of year from the Gamtoos River on the N2, to the Greater St Francis area. Sadly they have become highly threatened because of urban development, alien invasion, and ignorance and are in danger of dying out if people, new to the area, are not informed. Botanists and plant lovers hope that with more awareness their disappearance may be halted.

The other Facebook post that caught our attention also relates to the Fflora and Fauna was a post by FOSTER on footage caught on the FOSTER web trail camera that shows a new addition to a bush buck family. Too little is published on the incredible work this dedicated group does to protect the beauty that surounds us in St Francis. If you are new to St Francis and care about the precious green spaces and “cherish our beautiful places where nature has primacy”, give FOSTER a helping hand and donate, and if not yet a member, join up today. .
