I came across this flower during a hike up Elsie’s Peak above Simonstown this past Sunday, and was struck by the colours and appearance.  It’s not a flower that I’m familiar with so I took a photo to show my father and we looked it up in his reference book of wild flowers.  It’s called a Painted Lady and unfortunately, although you may find a plant called a Painted Lady in your local nursery, it’s not likely that you’ll find this particular flower.

Pretty, isn’t it?
