Colonel Bird's Bath
Whenever I'm in Cape Town I try to visit the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens to get my fix of green - and gigantic old trees ... it always renews my spirit.
On my last recent quick visit to Cape Town, my camera was in for cleaning and it was raining so I couldn't get to the garden - these are pics from previous trips but they don't really capture the beauty of the place, I just thought they may be of interest to some.
Here's what this site has to say:
"Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world. Few gardens can match the sheer grandeur of the setting of Kirstenbosch, against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain.
... was the first botanic garden in the world to be devoted to a country's indigenous flora.
There are over 7000 species in cultivation at Kirstenbosch, including many rare and threatened species."
