Only six hikers visited Flower Farm this morning. For me, it was my first walk with the group since the end of June and I was glad to be back. The weather was clear, but windy ahead of an approaching cold front.
We did the 7 km walk that took us over the mountain and down into the Stinkhout forest, where we availed ourselves of the picnic facilities to have our snacks, but only after we had negotiated what was a veritable obstacle course through the fallen trees!
The flowers were wonderful and we saw many interesting plants in addition to the usual Leucodendrons and Leucospermums that characterise the local hillslopes. Hopefully the names given to those shown below are not too far off the mark.
