In the Hantam area of Nieuwoudtville you can expect carpeting of wild flowers during August and September after a good rainfall (in their terms) in July. This little patch was in a dry sandy patch, where rain water flow once a year, maximum. The plant hugs the sand, which is kept intact against wind and water, forming a small hill in the end.
I will be away next week and a half. Have two weekends to remember.
