On Wednesday I went to Kirstenbosch, the national botanical garden, with friends Colby, Susan and Susan's husband Jeff (who is a botanist). Another perfect sunny and cool day and the gardens were breathtaking. Fun to be there with Jeff who is a Cycad fanatic and excited as a little kid over the ancient trees.
Proteas, the national and very unique flower, with the mountain backdrop at Kirstenbosch.

We even found a mermaid! I love how prolific and pervasive the mermaid myth is all over the world.
