The South African ‘Jingle Bells’ are soon flowering.
The first of September is the traditional begin of Spring in South Africa. Some of the peach trees are already flowering.
An Ariocarpus specie (rockplant from Mexico) flowering during the night.
Some pictures I recently shot of flowering orchids in the collection of a friend.
The Overberg area in the Western Cape, South Africa, is one of the ‘food baskets’ on which Cape Town survives. It’s also known as one of the main national suppliers of Canola. This is the time of the year that you see flowering canolas. Just a few shots while on the road.
Time for the Winter flowering aloes
….. a bit fruity with hints of cinnamon and honey. These two flowering Fenestraria species originate from Southern Africa and around this time of the year they spread their sweetness.
