South African beauties
The Protea is South Africa’s national flower. There was no better place to see them than on a recent visit to the wonderful city of Cape Town.
The botanical gardens of Kirstenbosch have the most amazing backdrop of one side of Table Mountain, boasting a treetop canopy walk among its acres of well-manicured grounds.
I made a beeline for the Protea garden with my macro lens, realising there are numerous varieties of the plant, beautiful with blooms and after they’re gone.
