It is autumn in Breenhold Gardens and the colours are magnificent
The Flame Tree also is also known as the Flame of the forest, is a beautiful tree with the fernlike green leaves and the masses of gorgeous scarlet flowers
Coral tree setting Kirstenbosch alight
The birds were going crazy eating these luscious red berries.
This Coral Tree looks so striking in the gardens.
The Baobab Tree is one of the giants of African trees that have many uses from the fruit to the bark. The size of the tree gives me the feeling of security and stability.
I couln't resist taking a picture of these seed pods, the textures, patterns and colour are so interesting and pretty.
I haven't been able to identify the tree that these seed pods come from so if anyone could assist in the identity it would be appreciated.
Thank you very much Richard Gill and Jack Bold for identifying the tree as Kiggelaria Africana - Seeds of the female Wild Peach Tree
This photo shows the beauty of the trees and the huge sky that can be seen every day in the Kruger National Park. The scenery is superb.
