And that means that the usually semi-arid, sand and rather windswept West Coast
of the Cape Province of South Africa does something amazing!
From the jagged and stormy coastline to the farmlands of the wheat belt and right into the Cedar Mountains,
the area is transformed into a flowerscape of variety and colour.
It is an easy 2 hour drive from Cape Town into this vast area of wonderment.
Within it there are many excellent places to stay overnight from comfortable bed and breakfasts to excellent top class hotels.
But in the case of this spring flower display, the journey is most definitely the destination!
