Do not be angry - I thought I would just put a few year as you enjoyed the others and well this is were I learn and read.

This is Cape Agulhas, Most Southern Most point of Africa.

This is a Freestate province pic, lots of open grasslands.

This is pic of the well-known Garden Route, town is Wildernis.

One of the walks there is to the Storm's river mouth through the forest.

Pic of the Great Karoo - thunderstorm in the back

This lake in the Kruger National Park


Namaqualand - lots of succulents (lithops, gibbaeum, argyroderma, cono's, etc,etc come from here

Overberg - one of the breadbaskets of sa.

Nice pics Beechplants!!! What part of SA do you live in? Seeing those pics reminds me of when I was down there. My cousin and her husband live outside Cape Town in Noordhoek.

Beautiful. Funny, I had no idea. I thought maybe you lived in San Diego.
No wonder your Haworthias are so spectacular!

Couldn't get tired of photos like that. They are wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing them. SA is a beautiful country.

Hint, hint, hint...photos of Aloes, Gasterias, any succulent plant in native habitat are invaluable... ;)

I see you on the same plane!

That is exactly what I would like do, visit that country and relish amongst all those beautiful plants and some of the animals, well at least a few.

Thank you so much. This was a treat for my eyes. More pictures please?
I always thought you lived in texas? Did you move recently?
You could be so lucky!

My daughter and I just drooled all over the computer looking at these. What a blessing to live in such a gorgeous part of the world! Are you native? We used to live in a similarly gorgeous place and I was frequently struck by how many of the natives seemed to take it for granted.

Hehe, Laura and Mike..You know what, I did a search and I think someone else is also named Beachplant, funny that I was allowed to register as beachplants. So multi plants is from SA! LOL

Mama, yes I am native, but I think we all take our surroundings for granted after a while, I used to get excited to see the dolphins going past, but its become a regular occurrence, now I notice when we do not see them for a few days. I do LOVE nature and get an urge to spend time in nature (drug for the soul) every now and then, which I need to satisfy - if that makes sense. I feel much calmer if I have been out and about for a bit. Rian
