We arranged to stay on the farm Forellenhof where the Nerines were growing in the wetland. Despite the welcome wet conditions we walked with our hostess, Ronelle van Eeden. None of the other potential members of the CREW group were able to join us as the access roads were very slippery. It did not take us long to find the first of the Nerine platypetala plants in the nearby wetland. Although clearly past their best, this population had flowered well and there were many old flower heads visible. The majority of those still flowering had no leaves, but there were a few with leaves.
This is definitely a place worth visiting again - hopefully in better weather conditions. Our best wishes for stimulating field trips in the future to the new CREW group.
