galangal happiness

Proof that a little love and nurturing is a just adequate substitute for tropical heat and humidity - I present to you: galangal, grown in Cape Town, 34 degrees south of the equator.

who is altogether lovely, a spring daisy.

Bontebok National Park
(Swellendam, Tuesday, on way back from a different Nature Reserve meeting). 
It turns out that despite the lack of any indication on signboards or permits, you are NOT allowed to walk amongst the flowers in Bontebok National Park. I was told to get back in my car. The man said: "imagine if everyone did this". I did. I smiled. The man was not amused.
