Every spring, from August to September/October, the apparently
barren soil of the West Coast, from the mountains to the ocean,
bursts forth in a kaleidoscopic carpet of flowers. Many tourists
are drawn to this glorious annual display, and if you decide to
follow suit, please bear the following in mind.
The duration of the flower season and the quantity of flowers is
determined by the rainfall and the absence of warm berg winds. The
flowers turn to face the sun, and therefore are best viewed with
the sun at your back. Flowers are in full bloom between 11:00 and
15:00, on sunny days.
