Stop and Instagram the wildflowers!For a few precious weeks each year – from mid-August until end-October – the fields, farms, wetlands and dunes of the Western Cape burst into a magnificent riot of colour as the wildflowers come into bloom. It’s a short-lived period, during which bloomers and boomers, Gen Xers and Zs hop into their preferred modes of transport to come and witness the wonder of the West Coast’s wildflowers. We’re not joking when we say “Blink and you’ll miss it”; because before you know it, the fields have turned brownish-grey again and the floral splendour is over for another year. If you’re keen to make hay while the sun shines and get gazing at nature’s magnificent plan, here is our pick of floral hotspots for prime viewing this spring. (Make sure your cameras and smartphones are charged!) Which is your favourite spot to view the Cape’s spring flowers? We’d love to hear from you in the comments below.
