Welcome to Africa’s most beautiful garden – Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, in the Western Cape. As can be seen from these magnificent photos, taken by ALAN RUDNICKI a few days ago, the grounds in South Africa’s most famous garden are currently alive with a fiery and spectacular display of King Proteas and Pincushion Proteas in all their splendour. It’s no surprise that the King Protea is the national flower of South Africa…

Enjoy this photographic extravaganza of Proteas, Proteas… and more Proteas:
