As we walked along the circular path around Lions' Head (this route) we noticed two things: that the silver trees have really grown tall, and that this time of year is daisy season!
Bright yellow daisies covered the lower slopes.
Fragrant buchu was also very much in evidence. We rubbed these flowers to release an sickly sweetness, almost artificial. Dom said it reminded him of a type of rubber we had as kids - yes, it is exactly that same smell.
We also saw phylica plumosa, commonly called featherhead, a very apt name. And also very large creamy white oxalis, closing up for the day as the sun disappeared.
