We set off towards the beacon and were soon in amongst the flowers. I surprised myself in managing to capture some photos of the floral spendour that give an impression of the masses of flowers.

Despite being harried by the strong wind and occasional showers, up at the beacon we were able to point out some good specimens of Disa saggitalis and there were some healthy clumps of Polystachya pubescens in rock crevices.
Hopefully this exposure to our flowering treasures will encourage the walkers who accompanied us to make repeat visits to the reserve.
