Hi all, the area around the town of Darling has some very interested places if you are into plants in general. After visiting Peter Hewitt's Nursery in the morning we started to drive towards Clanwilliam. On this way we went to three different locations in the Darling area. The first stop was at a location where we know, that there must be some plants of a cream/yellow flowered Drosera zeyheri. We have been there already in 2009, but did not find the plants. The first plants we found there were those: A few mintes later we could find the first Drosera trinervia as we as some deep red plants of Drosera cistiflora. This time we even found the Drosera zeyheri! The plants are growing scattered around the ground. Saddly they have already stopped flowering, so we had no chance to see the flowers. You can see pictures of the flowers from a 2006 Tour from Ferando Rivadavia here: http://www.cpukforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=24574&hl=zeyherii#entry203464
Hi, directly after arriving in Cape Town we wanted to do a short afternoon walk and decided to go to the Signal Hill with the close by Lion's Head. Hallo, There were no clouds at all, so we could enjoy spectacular views down to Cape Town and the Table Mountains. The temperature were around 30°C, a really nice day! You will have to pass some ladders to reach the top. Besides many interesting plants, you can also find some nice animals there. At the point that we needed to go back (it was already late afternoon) we found the first carnivorous plants of our tour! It was Drosera trinervia, most likely the most widespread species of the Western Cape: The way back was a bit adventurous. We had no problem to return from the Lion's Head, but we could not find a good way to walk down from Signal Hill to Sea Point, so we decided to go straight down (which is for sure not the best option for some parts of the Signal Hill). We finally arrived in Sea Point only to find out, that we had no idea where exactly we were, so we asked somebody to call a Taxi for us to get back to our hotel. We arrived there at 19pm. Luckily the lady at the hotel was kind enough to take our rental car, which was arranged for 18pm that day. We were totally tired that evening (a 15hrs flight + 5hrs walk), so we went to eat something and went sleeping soon after. regards, Christian
