“Hark, I hear a robin calling!
List, the wind is from the south!
And the orchard-bloom is falling
Sweet as kisses on the mouth.

In the dreamy vale of beeches
Fair and faint is woven mist,
And the river’s orient reaches
Are the palest amethyst.

Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils,
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills."
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Spring Song

Elke jaar word die Kersiefees beter en gewilder in Ficksburg. (O.V.S., Suid-Afrika)
Ficksburg is bekend as die Kersiehoofstad van die Wêreld.

ART: Sketches

When one thinks of Ficksburg, one thinks mostly of cherries, asparagus and sandstone mountains. Very few people know, however, that all of South Africa’s glazed cherries are produced in Ficksburg.
