2014 – Valentine’s Competition

Celia Fleming won a romantic rose gold and silver daisy ring, topped with a stunning red ruby, designed by Penchant Design. She submitted the following poem to us:

Why I love Franschhoek

 I have a penchant for Franschhoek It’s one of God’s perfect designs He poured out His heart when He made it Used the richest of palettes; took time.

 The result is a valley so pretty That it speaks to the soul and the mind It reflects the splendour of history While offering all that’s refined.

 For not only the scenery is dazzling The town sparkles and hums all the time: There is food, fine crafts, and there’s culture An abundance of chocolate and wine.

 It’s sixteen years to the month since we honeymooned there In a room with a beautiful view This is the playground of Cupid Romance, on a platter for two!

 I have a penchant for Franschhoek The place has crept into my heart I doubt there’s a place more beautiful Than this wonder of natural art.
