The Glorious Protea

Take my breath away

Colour Contrast

South Africa’s national flower is a reflection of the depth and beauty of the whole country. It is worth a hike into the mountains to see them growing in their natural environment and this is the best time of the year to do it. I have seen quite on various routes in Table Mountain recently.

You could not find better examples than these anywhere. These stunning photographs were taken by a friend hiking in the Kromrivier area, du Toit’s Kloof. No wonder they made it our national flower.

What a feast

Of course if you can’t make it into the mountains you can see them in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens
