The Kirstenbosch archive is here.
I was happy to see that it's plectranthus season at Kirstenbosch again, with spectacular shows of the pink, purple and pink flowers in the shady sections of the garden. So very pretty!
The local fox-gloves, also in white and pink, were looking lovely.
As I meandered about I noticed many pink and purple flowers.
Up near the top of the garden I watched a helicopter buzzing around Castle Rocks. I wondered if there was a rescue in progress, but it did not land or lower a stretcher, so I guess not.
The erica beds were also dominated by pink. Truly, April seems to be the pink month!
For the first time in ages I walked all the way down to the Silvertree Restaurant at the bottom of the garden and had a quick bite from the deli.
