A magical garden

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to take a leisurely stroll and photograph this incredible garden in Constantia.   Not only is it beautiful but it was fulfilling a good cause.  This garden belongs to Ina Paarman, whom many of you may know as you probably cook with her sauces, spices marinades, chutneys…the list goes on.  Mrs Paarman, every year, has an open garden day where the public are invited to stroll through her garden, have some coffee and get a chance to meet her.  All the proceeds go towards Boys Town charity and The Cape Times Bursary Fund  and it was good to see and hear that people were most generous.  Paarman Foods had the humblest of beginnings and has flourished into a house-hold name whilst still keeping it a family business. I am not a fan of the corporate world and its good to see humble beginnings become successful whilst still giving back to the community.   They were able to raise R23,500 for the charities with nearly 800 visitors over 2 days.
