Friday Walk

Last Friday I went for a walk with a friend up Constantia corner. It's one my favourite haunts: there's a moment when you see just grasses and restios and sandstone rocks and no sign of habitation. It's wonderful - real soul food.

Along the way we passed clumps of Syncarpha speciosissima - Cape Everlasting - and just had to stop and marvel...

For a moment I was lost in a world of papery bracts...

Further along we passed Camel rock - can you see it?

Then past the dam...

Leucadendron coniferum

How I love this city which has such jewels on its doorstep!
