The Kirstenbosch archive is here.
I was fighting a cold but it was far too nice a day to stay indoors so I made my way to Kirstenbosch for a little sunshine and a wander around. I wasn't the only one - it was Mother's Day and the place was busy.
As usual I climbed the hill to get away from the crowds.
Spotted on the way up: pretty little diascia.
Much quieter higher up. Glorious green lawns.
I found a good spot and put down a rug. Read my book, gazed at the views. Behind me Nursery Buttress loomed.
Fragrant fynbos on the right.
And a glorious vista in front of me. Such pretty skies this time of year.
