If Winter comes can Spring be far behind.........

While we are all shivering here in Cape Town, and the snow is lying white on the mountains, and plenty to more still to come, we hope, our thoughts turn to spring.

The 1st of September is only seven weeks
away.   Have we had enough rain for a good spring flower show this year?  Certainly not enough to fill our desperately empty dams.  Please use and re-use water very carefully.

Cape Town and surrounds really show off in spring with wild flowers, where ever the
seeds have a little soil to grow in, next to busy city freeways and roads as well as in our many green spaces and of course Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens.

For those who can travel further afield, the West Coast is usually magnificent, and prime places to visit are Darling, West Coast National Park and the Cedarberg areas to mention but a few.

So settle down with your favourite Cape wine and a good map, to start planning those Wild Flower excursions, because before you know it, Spring will be here.
