stumbled across the miracle and beauty of fynbos through my love of hiking in Jonkershoek mountains. Every time I go there, I see something special, something new, that I have never seen before, in amongst old time favourites, newly clothed in the hue of the day.

and so the exploration and interest have expanded to Table Mountain, Limietberg, Nuweberg... Cederberg, Swartberg.. etc etc..
