Fauna and Flora Friday: 23 October 2020

Wachendorfia paniculata Butterfly Lily, Rooikanol

Butterfly Lilies are perennial plants. The leaves are in a loose fan and oriented edgewise to the stem. The flowers are in a cylindrical or open panicle on a semi hairy stem. The flowers are yellow to brownish, with dark markings on the base of the upper three tepals.
These plants can be found on damp slopes and flats in southwestern South Africa, flowering best after a fire.

I took the following photos in the West Coast National Park in 2015.

Throwback Thursday: 22 October 2020

Good morning everyone,

Today we are traveling back in time to 9 September 2013. The beginning of our Tour de Sanparks. I think our tour name is very suitable. We visited a few Sanparks as well as other Nature Reserves on our circle route road trip.
I took these photos on the route from Citrusdal to Kamieskroon. We stopped for breakfast at the Klawer one stop.
