As cold fronts sweep over #SouthAfrica 's Western Cape, many families prepare to feast on waterblommetjiebredie, a heart-warming stew made from the waterblommetjies, or 'water flowers', that carpet the marshes of the Boland region during the winter months. Only available between June through September (depending on the rainfall), waterblommetjies and their delicate taste complement the rich flavours of lamb or mutton and the astringency of wild sorrel. "Waterblommetjies are like a family member at my table," said cook and culinary historian Errieda Du Toit. "As soon as autumn turns to winter, I start planning my first bredie. I can't help it."

When he was told 10 years ago that his village in Taiwan was scheduled to be demolished, Huang Yung-fu did something he hadn't done in decades: he picked up a paintbrush. What started as a drawing of a bird in his home soon became a colourful wonderland of cartoon-like people and abstract animals. Now 96, Huang continues to wake up before dawn to paint his Rainbow Village, which still stands because of his art. Those who come to visit Huang's village fondly refer to the elderly painter as 'Grandpa Rainbow'.
