wildflower (or wild flower) is a flower that grows in the wild, meaning it was not intentionally seeded or planted. Spring flower season in the Cape Region runs from the beginning of August to the end of September; though, both the West Coast and the Tankwa Karoo national parks’ best viewing period is from the last two weeks of August until mid-September.  These photo’s are from previous years. DSC06427DSC06462DSC06419DSC06515
