Has Spring Sprung?

Probably not (to answer my self-imposed question), since last night the thermometer hit -3 degrees.

Perfect frosty morning for a walk! Since I'd noticed quite a few things in flower recently, thought I better head out and document some of them. Fynbos contains many entertaining subjects for macro photography.

Frosty leaves
I'm not a plantologist, so some names of things below might be wrong (if you really want to learn latin plant names best buy Plants of the Klein Karoo).
