Location: Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden
The Kirstenbosch archive is here.
I popped into the garden to see what was in flower in the seasonal beds. Wow... what a lot of colour!
Ah, there's the striking Strelitzia, or crane flower. That orange is so bright!
The yellow variety is known as 'Mandela's Gold'. Stunning!
I also walked around the Glasshouse to see the succulents and bulbs. There are always interesting things to see here.
And then I made my way back to the garden, lay on the lawn and soaked up some lovely sun.
