West Coast Flower Magic

Nothing is more impressive,than the annual wildflower  extravaganza in August, on the West Coast. Thousands are drawn in early Spring, to view one of the most spectacular efflorescent displays in the world.

After the winter rainfall, The West Coast is transformed into a white wonderland as the rain daisy makes its appearance.  But soon the orange gousblom splashes the white with orange, followed by the yellow Cape dandelion, blue flax and purple hongerblom for the ultimate veld palette and celebration of beautiful colours.
