After the rain with a glimpse of the sun: 1; Boophone haemanthoides 2; Boophone haemanthoides (detail) 3; Cotyledon sp. 4; Ferocactus sp. 5; mesembranthaceae sp. 5; white flowering Iris. The Boophone haemanthoides (“Kwaslelie’) originates from Namaqualand and is fairly rare compared to the more common Boophone disticha.
