Me, Rachel Swailes. My blog about stuff I get up to in and around the Western Cape, Cape Town, George, Wilderness, Hermanus and other cool places :)

I’m loving this extended spring time in the park. First there were tulips in the grass, then blossoms on the trees, then daffodils EVERYWHERE! And now this…


At the Queen Anne’s Gate entrance there is a big flower bed in bloom. The one thing that the photos can’t capture is how fragrant it is to stand next to.
This is the statue at the entrance. If you stand up close to it, you can see where pieces have been replaced over the years. Also, a few days after this was taken, I noticed someone had cut flowers and placed them on the pot he was sitting next to.

In the middle of the park along the pond, there are still trees with blossoms. From far away they look completely pink, but up close you can see that they have started to show leaves.
