Party, with Plant Palettes

The flowers in the big glass vases were cut from the garden. Not just any garden. Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. 

The packed party in Kirstenbosch's airy Conservatory was to celebrate the launch of my friend Marijke Honig's new and very impressive book Indigenous Plant Palettes (Quivertree)

The southernmost baobab above, and Adi Badenhorst's wines, below.

Beautiful food, with Agent Fynbos in attendance.

Wild-inspired snacks from our friend Loubie.

Heidi Bertish, garden editor of Cond√© Nast's House and Garden, chats with the author before the interview proper, which was very illuminating, as only the best interviews are.

I'll write more about it when I have  the time, but for now, buy the book. Is all I can say. It will become a botanical classic.

  1. Ah, the conservatory. I was in there a few months back searching for the halfmans tree.
