Christmas Day at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden – Flickr pic of the day
“This photo was taken on Christmas Day at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and shows Castle Rock and Fern Buttress towering over the gardens. The untamed art installation is to the right, where a living wall of indigenous plants growing in plastic bottles is wrapped around a core of weathering steel,” says Marie.
“Kirstenbosch is one of the most beautiful spots to picnic in Cape Town, and on this hot sunny day every piece of shade under the trees was occupied by families and friends enjoying a picnic lunch. The garden showcases South Africa’s diverse plant populations in various sections, and is worth close inspection before and after lunch!”
