Strelitzia Season at Kirstenbosch

Date: 20 October 2012


Walker: Helen

The Kirstenbosch archive is here



I popped into the garden to see what was in flower in the seasonal beds. Wow... what a lot of colour! 


Ah, there's the striking Strelitzia, or crane flower. That orange is so bright!


The yellow variety is known as 'Mandela's Gold'. Stunning! 


I also walked around the Glasshouse to see the succulents and bulbs. There are always interesting things to see here.


And then I made my way back to the garden, lay on the lawn and soaked up some lovely sun.
