This was one of our views over the Cape peninsula from the Silvermine range on Thursday afternoon. It was a floriferous walk, but we are short on time and stories will be told later, once we are back in Brooklyn.
I leave you with some hiking rules to ponder:
So there. Don't say you didn't know.
Some good flora-related news - my pictures of Disa longicornu and Themeda triandra (rooigras - subject of one of Antjie Krog's most haunting poems) will be published by House and Garden and National Geographic, respectively. Eep!
And now we rush off to Kirstenbosch, on our last day in Cape Town, to find more flowers and more stories, and then we gather for lunch with my mom at her favourite restaurant, The Food Barn.
Time has flown.
