Eastern Cape Trip

Last year at this time my husband and I were on a trip to the Eastern 
Cape with friends that was led by Cameron McMaster. One of the 
disadvantages of being an administrator for the wiki is that I often 
don't have time to add our pictures as I check additions and help 
others. So I still haven't added a lot of the pictures from that trip.

Since it has been unusually cold here in Northern California even 
though I know it is nothing compared to what it is like for some of 
the rest of you, I'd like to remember that trip by adding some photos 
every day to the wiki  (if I can find time). Perhaps it will allow me 
to feel the warmth of the South African summer.  So I'm going to take 
a break from some of the administrative work to add photos from this 
trip. Since I've gotten a late start (our first day to take pictures 
was January 7), it may have to extend a bit on the other end.

Cameron is leading a trip like this one for the Alpine Garden Society 
at the moment with some of the members of this list participating and 
there are many others on this list who have also gone with him who 
may enjoy remembering that special time.

The photo for today was taken at Satan's Nek. It was overcast, misty 
finally leading to rain which is reflected in the photos. Cameron led 
us to a spot where Crocosmia masoniorum was blooming with Agapanthus 
praecox. It was a little challenging getting to this spot and also 
challenging to get close enough for a shot. Luckily for me many of 
the South African friends in this group insisted I'd want to see this 
and suggested places to put my feet safely to get there and offered 
helpful hand holds as well. Photos from Cameron and my husband, Bob
