Recently I took the Ivesons walking on Table Mountain. Walking is always a great way to make new friends. But by remarkable coincidence an old university friend and his wife had just arrived by sea and also walked up Table Mountain with us. I haven’t
seen Marshal Klaus and Ellen for more years than I can remember.
The genus Agapanthus must be one of the best known and most widely grown garden plants in the world. There are six known species and all of them are endemic to South Africa. We came across this beautiful specimen of Agapanthus africanus growing in a rock fissure.
