Old favourite – Arboretum


I haven’t walked in the Arboretum for ages so went there yesterday. I still haven’t managed to find out anything about this place except that it might belong to Kirstenbosch but they haven’t replied to my request for some history. I’ll keep digging.

Vida was thrilled to be here again ..sniff sniff everywhere, bounding through the long grass like a puppy, I hadn’t worn my wellies and the stream was a bit of a torrent so we walked everywhere else and then around the stream so we could investigate the other side, too. Madam was thrilled and continued running in her sleep all evening.


Lots of lovely long grass for a little dog to enjoy!

Lovely light at that time of day, late afternoon. More sniffing.

where is spring

These trees are always a bit late .. lovely pink blossoms when they do get cracking.

Unknown, no scent

Spring is pretty much everywhere

About Francoise Armour

I run a small touring company (Tours du Cap) at the bottom of Africa, to show visitors the beauty and vibrant culture of the country I have lived in since my parents brought me here from France as a child. I enjoy taking photos and wish I had learnt to do it properly. I enjoy writing but don't do enough of it. I enjoy walking in the mountains that surround me and I marvel over the views and the flowers and the amazing rock formations. I have a small, cute, clever, black dog of indeterminable breed, named Vida, who reminds me regularly that walking and getting out is not only for when tourists want it.

A note to all accidental visitors:

I am not a photographer and do not claim to have any particular skills whatsoever in that department. I have enormous respect for those who can see the potential in a scene and can create a great photo. Good photography is an art, in my opinion.

I am just a happy snapper, I have no special lenses or accessories, my camera is very simple and it's usually best to leave the setting on auto.
