It’s a visual “treat” when the first dusting of Cape snow arrives and we know that summer is just around the corner.
The flowers and their white papery bracts have adapted to coping with moisture loss during the hot, dry and windy conditions of the Cape summer.
And the “Ice” plants are looking good too:
We’re a fanciful lot down here at the southern end of Africa – when the sun beats down and the temperatures rise, we look over white veld and pretend that it is full of cool snow, catching the glint of winter through the shimmer of ice plants.
The post is in response to the WPC theme: “Treat”.
