What's even more fun than receiving a message from a flower which I thought has gone missing, is receiving two messages from that very same flower in the same week! This message comes from James Butler all the way from England.
I saw your flower on the Malgas Pontoon on Friday 7th September. I apologise for the delay in sending this to you – but we had no ability to transfer photos to an email until we got home.
My names is James Butler and I am from England. My wife and I were on our way from Knysna to De Hoop when we saw your flower, and I loved the idea! Only now I am home and can read your blog do I realise I could also have seen one at l’Agulhas and Hermanus! But then the beauty of your chain is in discovering them when unawares, not in looking for them, I think!
Your blog, through the flowers, shows the way people from all over the world are crossing paths all the time – we are all disparate, yet connected (in this case by your great idea).
South Africa is a beautiful country with huge potential. And the Malgas Pontoon has to be the most serene mode of transport I have ever enjoyed!
I look forward to seeing who else finds your flowers.
Thank you James!
