It’s officially flower season in the Western Cape and there’s no better way to celebrate it than with a visit to Postberg Nature Reserve to revel in the beauty of mother nature.

Flower season along the West Coast takes place annually between August and September. As the season changes, nature begins to bloom and flowers of all colours spring up along the landscape accompanied by fauna enjoying the sunshine.

Locals have begun visiting Postberg Nature Reserve to delight in the vivid beauty the mountainside has to offer.

If you haven’t decided to add flower viewing to your to do list this year, here are a few picturesque photographs to give you that extra push:

LITTLE STORY : This is one of my favourite places! Every year in August & September these flowers bloom & our day visit to see them is always special. I did some watercolour paintings of the flowers which I used in an art piece earlier this year (last slide) I had titled the artwork “In Loving Memory”. The flowers, in this piece, represent memories & I used a diptych to emphasis the need for a healthy distance between ourselves and memories. Like flowers, memories are beautiful, but we can’t recreate them & we have to let old memories go to let new ones bloom in their place. So on my recent trip to this flower wonderland – I experienced the same kind of happy as I did on my previous visit, but not because the experiences were exactly the same. The flowers of last year have since died so that the flowers I saw this year are new, but just as beautiful. The portrait with the Mona Lisa sorta smile is me being happy, with a hint of sadness at the loss of a number of things this year. It’s ok to feel sad, but it’s also important not to be consumed by the blues. Here’s to remembering, with love, what’s lost & to appreciating the new blossoms of the future. #flowers #memories #oilpainting #watercolor #watercolorpainting #oil #diptyque #diptych #posbergnaturereserve #blue #storytime #happy #2020 #artistsoninstagram #art #nature #naturelovers #blossomseason #blossom #southafrica
