Don’t you just love this time of year


… (well, unless you are facing exams, I guess) but there is a fresh brightness in all the colours around. The trees are bright green, the sky brighter blue and it might be because we are so used the browns and golds of winter, that the banksia’s look brighter yellow! The sweetpeas continue their pink and purple profusion in the dining room, meanwhile it would appear that we have beaten the Dassie’s tastebuds at the main entrance (ok, only on one side) as we now have cornflowers and daisy’s to the point of flowering!

We awoke to find Buster… well busted. It would appear he and the new stallion Stephans went a few rounds last night. How do you tell if a horse has a black eye…? Dooni our donkey, is settled in well, loves company and has a mind of his own when trying to get him to stay behind the stable gate. Lady is well named and gentle – my kind of gal.

Recycle… Yesterdays collection of sweetpeas!

Fun on the Farm

We currently have a bus load of seniors staying from Bedfordview. Wonderful to see familiar and new faces, who are today off to have a picnic at Golden Gate. If you are a senior and considering a “Wyndford break” before the festive season, but don’t fancy the drive, Philip from Woodpecker Travel and Tours has space for three guests 31 October – 4 November and four for the week 5 – 9 December. Rates including transport and personalized tours are R6450 sharing and R7450 single. In order not to miss out contact us at reception or Philip on 082-3727930.

For those Cherry fanatics among you – Stay with us and enjoy the Ionia Cherry Crop festival 17 – 20 November – so much they have arranged for you to do and see! From live music, farm stalls, cherry picking, Street Food and more. Booking for the festival online is the only way in…

Alternatively, for those who love bowls and fun, (although we’ve yet to see an uncompetitive bowler whatever their expertise) join us from the 20 – 25 November for our week of fun in the sun. Thanks to Joseph and Rynhard this year the green is looking better than ever so far!

Also, as we have in the past experienced, toward the end of the year is sometimes fall out season. We wanted to offer a special to Vicars/ Ministers/ Dominee/ Pastors, whatever your leader is called and their spouses, a special Retreat, Renew and Refuel time away at Wyndford.  A time to draw quietly aside, be cared for and inspired. If you would like to get together and gift them this time, or you are in ministry and feeling run down and weary, we will assist you with a discount. Please get in touch with we will work together! Our oil in a jar…

So one way or another, ah also, don’t forget about booking for schools half term, another time for fueling up before the rounds of carol services, exams and prizegiving, as well as end of year functions!
