Back to Featherstone Kloof for the flowers

We went back to Featherstone Kloof yesterday to see the King Proteas and all the other winter flowers.  We have had a warm sunny spell lately and so lots of flowers are blossoming in the grasslands and fynbos.  It was a real mix.  There’s this year’s Proteas with the most amazing coral pink shades, the winter leaves fallen in the forest, and last year’s Protea and Oldenburgia flowers all dried up and shrivelled into intricate patterns.  The strong warm wind made for pleasant walking but it made the photography tricky.
