Conversion by flower

Today, at Cape Point, Vincent fell in love with Helichrysum vestitum. Also known as Cape snow. But we think they look like flocks of small sheep. Their fresh whiteness was strewn across an enormous area of restios (reed-like plants).

The difference in floral display is arresting - we are usually here three to six weeks later in the year. It's like an entirely new season.
