The end is in sight

On the last morning of our trip we did a final drive around Calvinia.  My long suffering husband, with great patience and no visible signs of irritation, would stop the car every time I saw something I couldn't resist.  Such as this ...

... or this

... and even this.

In contrast to all the orange daisies and other wildflowers, these miniature cacti are the type of plants that flourish during the long, dry and hot summer months.

Finally we came upon this interesting looking sign and although it was a Sunday, the owners very kindly asked us in and invited us to browse.  This was probably the most fascinating part of our whole trip, so the picture below will set the scene for the last day of our wildflower trip and also introduce you to our magnificent self-appointed guide.

I love your photos. You have a good eye for the simply beautiful.
You take care.

This has been the most wonderful tour, and I for one am sorry it's coming to an end. What comes next?

I think that your glorious photographs, so filled with vibrant colour, should be prescribed as winter therapy for us here in dank grey Britain!
