Wildflowers


It has been a glorious first day of Spring today.  It was quite befitting for a trip to Table Mountain, notorious for spring wildflowers.  We got a lot more rain this year than we have in a while.  That combined with the unseasonable warm 74 degree weather made for a wonderful early showing.  I think this is either a type of clover or an indian paintbrush but I am not really sure.  Does anyone know?  It looks beautiful with the backdrop of lupins behind it.  This was the only one we saw.  I am going to have to go back to see the display as different flowers come out so keep an eye out for more images. Now I must jet off to the studio.  I have one more sculpture to glaze for the high fire kiln.  I also have some work for cone six but not a lot so we'll see how that goes.  I'd love to know what wonderful things you did with your first day of spring!

I love to see your Table Mountain pictures, you are so good at catching just the right position. I can't wait to go myself.
