Filled with mountains

Silver filigree of a burnt protea.
With Mike and Patty above the Palmiet River.

Here are the small beauties and secrets of the Kogelberg. After four days there I feel filled with mountains, rain, sun and river water.

Sticky stem of a sundew.

Oracle on the Woodcutters' Path

A rainy day on the Woodcutters' Path in Newlands Forest. Mysterious writing on a tree trunk.
A profound universal secret.
Or just the route of a wood beetle's lunch.

And here, on the edge of the forest, an old forgotten peach tree laughs.
