Company Gardens – Flickr pic of the day
Sebastian says, “I love visiting Cape Town, staying with my friends in Observatory and taking trips out for the day. I also enjoy just relaxing in town, especially in the Company Gardens, which are a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
“There’s nothing better than sitting under the trees in the shade, watching the world go by, listening to the birds singing and people chatting as they walk by. On the day that I took this picture, the table cloth (a local term for clouds over Table Mountain) was coming and going, changing every few minutes – a fascinating feature of a stunning mountain,” he continues.
Gardeners and botanists can enjoy leisurely walks along the tree-lined paths while taking in some of the more than 8 000 species of plants contained in the park, before stopping for tea and cake at the tea room.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
