The Western Cape in South Africa is a Winter rainfall area. And while the Northern Hemisphere is moving into the summer here we slowly move into the Winter. For the Western Cape it means that many endemic aloes will provide a magnificent view while driving through the rural part of this South African province.
… but there is a year-round floral display in our garden.
Dormancy in the garden … well … every plant needs some rest; very human like 😀
Just a few shots along the provincial road nearby. The Western Cape is a Winter rainfall area with relatively dry Summers. The fresh green is what most people expect during Spring. Here you can experience that during Winter. And also the local wood logger is in the green.
Looks insignificant on first sight especially during its present Summer dormancy but this Tylecodon specie from Southern Africa is in all its petty details a gem.
