Through the lens By Carolyn Frost - February 1, 2024 Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Ronelle van Loggerenberg shared some delightful wildlife photos with Bolander, saying: “I think a lot of us are feeling a bit under the weather with all this wind. But when I think of the rain it brings to the farmers who badly need it, then I don’t mind so much…” This beautiful frog was spotted resting peacefully in a sunspot on a rock in a pond at the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, along Clarence Drive.
