It’s Flower Friday!
For the month of August every Friday I am going to share some tips, introduce you to some natural beauties and give you the latest weather for flower viewing.
All over the West Coast from Langebaan all the way up the N7 the West Coast Wild Flowers are in bloom.
GENERAL FLOWER VIEWING TIPS
*The best viewing time is from 10:30 to 16:00
*Temp must be at least 18⁰C
*Flowers face the sun so best to see the display with sun behind you, travel North first then South for the best view.

BEAUTY OF THE WEEK
The “reenblommetjie”/white rain daisy (Dimorphotheca pluvialis) *pictured below, is always one of the first spring annuals to flower on the West Coast. They are currently all over the Pilgrimsrust plots just before Paternoster, Bekbaai area of Paternoster and in the Tietiesbaai Nature Reserve that borders Paternoster. These annuals are adapted to germinate, grow, flower and set seed during the rainy winter and to survive the long dry summer as seed. The flowering season is from July to October, depending on the rain.
Locally we also called them West Coast Snow…so come and walk in the snow right here in Paternoster!
The weather changes all the time, especially along the coast, so please check for an update on https://www.yr.no/place/South_Africa/Western_Cape/Paternoster/long.html
