I had the pleasure of spending a rather lush afternoon in Cape Town’s botanical gardens. This place is like a garden of eden nestled at the foot of these majestic mountains. We walked around and had a kip in the grass (kip [nap] one of my several South African colloquialisms I picked up along with robots [traffic lights], braai [barbecue] and bakkie [truck]). If I lived in Cape Town I would picnic here all the time…

Kirstenbosch Gardens, Cape Town
It’s majestic!! We say’kip’ here in the UK too. It’s fun learning the other words though 🙂 What a special place..was great to see it!! Have a wonderful week 🙂 xx
These are such beautiful photos – it is fascinating looking at gardens with plants and a landscape unlike any in my own country!
All you photographs, on this post and others, are so beautiful. You really inspire me to pick up my camera more often. Oh, and I utterly love your new background, it is simply adorable.
