Cape Town in bloom

I’m down in Cape Town this week, visiting family and having a break from Durban and work.  And I think I’ve timed it perfectly!  I took a stroll along the Pipe Trail on Table Mountain and the fynbos is in bloom.  Such beautiful, interesting flowers.  I didn’t have my camera with me, but snapped a shot of this fascinating plant with my phone.

    Nice shot! And that with a phone!
    Summer is really on it’s way, I see the typical spring flowers starting to flower here in Blouberg. Can’t wait for summer, although this winter wasn’t too bad.
