Bizarre, beautiful, maybe simple, often exquisitely complex, at times shy and others outrageously loud, whether orchids or carnivores, these  are the flowers and plants of the Western Cape. They are the fynbos, part of the Cape floral kingdom, smallest of the world’s six floral kingdoms but also the richest per area unit.

Most shots were taken around Cape Point, Table Mountain and Silvermine, magical places if I ever knew one, on many a beautiful walk with Marie, nature all around, peace within.

I will label each specie once my specialist has looked at them and pronounced a verdict.
