An old photo of me with @jeremiahsplants and some carnivorous Roridula plants at @california_carnivores. A Californian and Colorado-an bonding over exotic, resinous plants that smell kinda funny near Humboldt County...seems appropriate for the holiday. 🙃 The International Carnivorous Plant Society (@icpscp ) met this last summer in Northern California, and I was able to meet some "internet friends" like Jeremiah at the tail end of the event. It's always fun getting to chat with other plant nerds. My Roridula plants are evidentally more famous than me lol!! Flip through the post and see why, the plant is waaaaay prettier than me LOL. Thanks @damonleifc for taking the pic and feeding my plant addiction! 🤣 #roridula #carnivorousplantsofinstagram #carnivorousplants #plants #nerd #carnivorous #sticky #californiacarnivores #icps #famous #flytrap #sundew #sebastopol #california #northerncalifornia #summer #tbt #horticulture #southafrica #africa #african #endemic #fynbos #resin #stickyicky #420 #humboldt #sonoma #colorado #savagegarden
Oxalis luteola aka Golden Sorrel is the only low-growing yellow-coloured oxalis! It is endemic to the western Cape and is currently showing beautifully in the grey ashy areas of where the January fires occurred... . . . #flowers #wildflowers #fynbos #endemic #southafrica #pringlebay #afterthefire #yellow #beauty #nature #cycleoflife #biodiversity #botany #walkingthedog #iphonephotography
Exploring the Hemel en Aarde valley last week and appreciating the dusty roads and fynbos.

KRANSHOEK TRAIL - our last hike 😩 . . We knew this would be a tricky one because the Internet said, ‘this is a challenging hike.’ We figured it would be steep, cliff edgy and boulder crossy. We were right. . . What we didn’t expect was scree. . . Scree is straight up nonsense. It doesn’t want to stay on the mountain, it wants to be on the beach getting made into pretty smooth pebbles. It’s main goal is to twist your ankle, break your thumb or do both and then send you down the cliff to your death. . . In spite of the damn scree, we LOVED this hike. The scenery was breathtaking. The trail was fun and only slightly deadly sometimes. It was also free, because no one was in the little hut when we got there... so 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . #kranshoek #hike #coastalhike #seaview #pebblebeach #scree #gardenroute #fynbos #southafrica #hallhike #hallneymoon #halliday #adventuremoon
Gladiolus brevifolius-Herfspypie Autumn glads are like lifegiving medicine to a Fynbos botanist weary from the long, mostly flowerless summer. Every damn year these Fynbos endemics take my breath away when I spot them. Just a jewel in the dry veld, signaling the great transformation that will happen in the coming months. Also, autumn is, atmosohere wise, my favourite season in the Cape, captured in the moody, dramatic light. . . #fynbos #lowlandfynbos #gladiolus #autumn #botany #plantsofinstagram #endemiccape #pink #dramatic
"I am in awe of flowers.  Not because of their colors,  but because even though they  have dirt in their roots,  they still grow.  They still bloom." - D.

🌿Fynbos Stand at the Rare Plant Fair🌵”It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed”~ Ram Dass 🎍Amen🙏🏻
Sitting among the Fynbos, not the daisies. There are some truly beautiful, peaceful places in Cape Town where you can breathe out and reflect. We hope you are having a lovely Easter Weekend with your family! #capetown #blogger #travel #fynbos #mountain #view #sablogger
When you plant 🌱 flowers that sunbirds love. Who says you can have sunbirds visit your balcony on the third floor 😅. This little guy visits us every single morning around 11 am to grab some nectar from out rosemary and fynbos flowers. . . . #sunbird #doublecollaredsunbird #fynbos #rosemary #green #red #birds #flowers #potplants #pottedgarden #apartmentgardening #pottedplants

Beautiful scenic views during our 5km trail run. Thanks @lomondwine and @scuttleevents for hosting #easterweekend ! #lomondwines #gansbaai #capeagulhas #5kmtrailrun #familyfun #explore #nature #fynbos
Saturday morning walk in #fernkloof #naturereserve - it’s just wonderful to have all of this beauty right on our doorstep. #kingprotea #nationalflower #fynbos
Cape Town’s fynbos is vital because it allows 80% of the rainfall (fresh water) to flow downstream and into our rivers and aquifers. Therefore, the indigenous plants create astonishing diversity and are important for clean water conservation. This precious resource supports an enormous diversity of life and is essential for human survival. Protect our beautiful indigenous plants! 🌱💧🌊 #natural #beauty #beach #perfectday #ocean #mountain #nature #pipetrack #lionshead #love #capetown #fynbos #waterconservation #cleanwater #ecowarrior
Saw a nice big garden orbweb spider on my walk yesterday, complete with tiny husband biding his time. Here in the fynbos they spin large webs suspended between taller plants, often right across the path. When I was little my mom allowed one to stay in our garden and we watched it catch insects and wrap them up in silk. I'm squeamish about touching small critters but it never occurred to us to be afraid. . . . #spidersofinstagram #spiderseason #lastofsummer #fynbos #kleinmond #kogelberg #lovenature #love #thelittlethings
Spotted from the Rooisand bird hide at the Bot estuary! Springbok - behind the electric fence erected by neighboring Lamloch farm. Normally found in open arid grass plains of the western areas of Southern Africa.

@kinetickygo loves rolling around on the lush thick leaves of the Carpobrotus edulis aka the sour fig, Cape fig or the Hottentots fig! It has great medicinal properties for sore throats, constipation and even insect bites 😳 Not just a pretty flower 🤔 #Carpobrotusedulis #sourfig #Capefig #Hottentotsfig #SilvermineNatureReserve #fauna #flora #flower #flowerpower #flowerobsessed #loveflowers #blossom #bloom #appreciatingnature #stopandsmellthefynbos #stopandstare #fynbos
