Valentine’s Day with Cape Town’s flower sellers: Pictures and video

Adderley Street, in Cape Town’s city centre, has been the site of a flower market for more than 100 years.

During that time, the flower sellers have become the saviour of many hopeless romantics, especially those who have left their Valentine's Day shopping until the last minute!

They are known for their good humour and wit, and are a shining example of a successful small business enterprise in the city.

Check out photos and a video from earlier today – their busiest day of the year:

Choosing the right combination of flowers is important!

Roses are always popular...

... but there are many other blooms to choose from

You don't even need to leave your car!

The colours and the smell make a visit to the flower sellers very pleasant

There are other Valentine's goodies on sale here too
