Spring has officially arrived and the Darling hills are painted in vibrant colours. Carpets of white rain daisies and bright orange gousblom with splashes of yellow Arctotheca (Cape Weed) and Ursinia (Parchute daisy) as far as the eye can see.
Darling and the West Coast is located within the Cape Floristic Region and is one of the most biodiverse places in the world. Many of the species found in the area occur no where else in the world. The Darling Wildflower Society is committed to promoting the conservation of the endemic and indigenous wildflowers of Darling and surrounds among landowners and remains actively involved with the maintenance of the two municipal wildflower reserves in Darling.
To celebrate spring 2021 here are some of the more recent wildflowers observed along the nature walk in the sandveld and renosterveld vegetation at Groote Post Vineyard.
