In Spring the West Coast comes alive with flowers. There are many places along the West Coast to enjoy the Spring flowers – and we’ve visited a few lately – but be sure to see the wild veld flowers in the Darling area on your next West Coast getaway. The roadsides burst into colour and reserves are decked out in their best Spring finery. The Darling Wildflower Society points out on their website that Darling contains more than 10% of the species count of the Cape Floral Kingdom in less than 1% of the area. During Spring certain private reserves, such as Waylands Flower Reserve and Tienie Versveld Wildflower Reserve, open their farms to the public for flower viewing on a drive-through or walkabout basis. We went on Saturday, and here are our pics …
