Long time that I haven't been here........ :redface:

Love the bokhorings..... :clap: :clap:

The fruit of the Pergularia daemia (Perennial climber), which animals eat them?? We saw quite a few of the fruit that was half eaten at a picnic site in Kruger. (I think it was this climber??)

Oh what a pretty, delicate flower.

Pelargoniums aren't usually my favourites but that was lovely.
