Cape in bloom!

I took these pics a few weeks ago in Silvermine Nature Reserve when the Cape had just started blooming. By now, the spring flowers are popping up everywhere. Can anyone identify these? As I have said before, when it comes to Cape flora, I am a newbie 🙂

    Hi Mol-d , The pink is a Podalyria, cream balls— Brunia sp or Berzelia abrotanoides, purple — Muraltia. The Cape flowers are so beautiful

    Pink (sweet pea bush) with grey leaves is Podalyria calyptrata. http://www.plantzafrica.com/plantnop/podalyrcalp.htm
    Yellow strawflowers – sewejaartjie.
    Muraltia, yes, tiny and prickly.
